Third module for GNED 1201 (Aesthetic Experience and Ideas). This one covers how the historical and cultural context of Homer. It begins by examining art and society of the Minoans and then the Mycenaeans. It then examines Homer, the Iliad, and the Odyssey.
This course is a required general education course for all first-year students at Mount Royal University in Calgary, Canada. My version of the course is structured as a kind of Art History and Culture course. Some of the content overlaps with my other Gen Ed course.
