This course aims to deepen your knowledge about something usually taken for granted in the Western world: Democracy. What does democracy really mean? What counted as democracy yesterday, what is democracy today, and how will we understand it tomorrow? Through a comparative perspective, relating the original Greek democracy to that of the modern world, we will approach the concept of democracy through the varied discourses of archaeology and history, political science, history of ideas, philology and sociolinguistics. The course and its fieldwork will work with three overarching themes that are suitable for a comparative analysis, and moreover intrinsically linked to the archaeological excursions in Athens.
Course participants will receive a stipend for a return trip from Sweden to Athens, and free accommodation in Athens.
