Laudato Si': On Care for Our Common Home (1) In advance of the Paris Agreement on climate change in 2015, Pope Francis released his encyclical on "integral ecology" and spoke to leaders and audiences around the world about the moral challenge presented by global warming. This course explores the relationship between science, theology, economics, and environmental issues. Discussions concentrate both on the arguments developed in the text itself and on the way it has entered social and political debates about global sustainability.

The Mythographer's Craft (3) Greek and Roman mythographers gave new life to older epic stories in eras when collections of classical tales were in great demand as texts for teaching and learning. This course traces the transformation of the birth of the gods, Jason's voyage with the Argonauts, and Aeneas's travels after the Trojan war to illuminate the fates of these narratives when distilled from Hesiod's Theogony, Apollonius Rhodius's Argonautica, and Vergil's Aeneid into Apollodorus's Library and Hyginus's Fabulae. As the epic tales took shape and were reshaped in Archaic and Hellenistic Greece and early imperial Rome, these metamorphosing stories resonated through theologies, rituals, politics, and societies. Appreciating the particular patterns of these narratives' shifts over time and across space by studying these movements as processes unfolding within their respective historical and religious traditions reveals what Greek and Roman myths contributed to their cultures both separately and together.
