Greekness as present in dance-related sources). Their evaluation will be based on:
- presence and active participation in discussions in class;
- one oral presentation;
- one end-of-term essay.
Minimum requirements and assessment criteria
Knowledge of Greek is not a pre-requisite but those students comfortable with working in Greek will be
given optional reading in Greek. Basic knowledge of early 20th century Greek history would be helpful.
