1 1 COLLEGE YEAR IN ATHENS Spring Semester 2015 Course H/S311: The Development of Athenian Democracy: History and Institutions Course Syllabus Tuesday/Thursday Instructor: Professor Edward M. Harris Available: After class or by appointment. 1. Course Description and Objectives This course offers a comprehensive overview of Athenian democracy from Solon to the defeat at Chaeronea in 338 BCE. The course will cover the main events of Athenian history in the sixth, fifth and fourth centuries BCE and the main institutions of Athenian democracy (Council, Assembly, Courts) and provide a brief introduction to the economy of the city in Classical period. One of the aims of the course is to analyze the sources for the history of the period in English translation with careful attention to their ideological context and to the problems of evaluating the evidence. The course will also study the interactions between institutions and events and between individual actors and collective practices. Students will be encouraged to study the material remains of Athenian democracy in excavations and museums. 3. Assessment - Grades Students are required to write one essay examining a particular historical question based on a close study of the sources. The essay should be around 2,500-3,000 words, excluding bibliography. The deadline is Friday, 17 th April. Students can choose any topic on which to write an essay within the framework of the course, but must discuss their proposed topic with the instructor to agree a title and to get advice on bibliography before starting research. A draft of the essay can be handed in for comment if given at least 7 days before the deadline. The object of this exercise is to engage fully with a variety of both primary evidence and secondary literature and to deploy that evidence in analyzing a historical question. The essay will be graded on: - Level of reading of the bibliography and engagement with previous scholarship. - Originality of thought and personal input into the subject. - Clarity of argument and structure of the essay. - Use of a variety of evidence to inform a historical issue. - Style and clarity of language, and format suitable to an academic paper. The mid-term exam (Tuesday March 10 th ) will consist of two essay questions and ten multiple choice questions.

2 2 The final exam will consist of a series of essay questions, from which the student chooses two to answer in 2 hours, covering all the topics discussed during the term, and twenty multiple choice questions. The final grade will be calculated from the grades assigned for: the mid-term (15%), final exam (40%), the essay (35%), and attendance, punctuality, and participation (10%). 4. Class Attendance - Absences Student attendance of all classes is mandatory; class discussion beings immediately, so please be on time. Continued lateness will lose you grade points (10% of the final grade). Attendance is taken at each session. In case of illness, it is the student s responsibility to contact the instructor and to make up for missed work (see also the general stipulations of CYA). If you have to miss a class due to illness, you should notify the Student Affairs Office. Students are also expected to participate in class discussion. 5. Class schedule, meeting points, and reading is compulsory because discussion depends on good knowledge of the sources and relevant modern literature. For each reading, there will be questions to answer. These questions are to help you pick out the most important points in the reading and to prepare you for class discussion. There will be occasional in-class quizzes based on readings and questions; these do not count toward the final mark, but are given to encourage you to answer the questions and to prepare for class discussion. 6.
