Exploring the Ancient Mediterranean in the Carlos Museum

Special Evidence-Focused Seminar. For more information: http://evidence.emory.edu/in-the-news/evidence-focused-courses.html

The course has two goals: 1) to introduce students to ancient Mediterranean culture and society by looking at, engaging with, talking and reading about objects in the Carlos collections and 2) to raise questions about what museums are and what they do -- raising both historical issues about collection and display, and contemporary concerns and roles (including the role of the museum in public education).
