hey just as a psa
this june coursera is running their greek & roman mythology class again which hasn’t run since september of 2012 and if you want to get into classics, even just in a tangential way, PLEASE take this class, it’s so great and wonderful and the readings are great and the professor is very passionate about the subject, please at least check it out
i wouldn’t recommend it for people who are already Very Classics since it’s pretty entry level??? but for people who don’t know much about it, please go look at that
reblogging from my main blog because i think people need to know about this. this class is what got me seriously into classics as a study and not just as a passing interest, and if you’re interested in learning about greek myth but don’t know where to start or find the source texts hard to process, i HIGHLY recommend this class.
Seconded. This is a great intro class.
