Canisius College’s Institute for Classical and Medieval Studies Lifelong Learners Center offers a six-session course on The Seven Wonders. Class meets weekly on Wednesdays, 5-6:30 p.m., beginning September 12. In this course we will examine ancient texts, explorers’ accounts, and modern archaeological investigations to understand the lives and afterlives of these monuments. What can these monuments tell us about the ancient civilizations who built them, the Greeks who admired them, and the modern archaeologists and historians who study them? We will also consider how modern people have continued to make lists of seven wonders or designate modern monuments as the “eighth wonder.” Instructor: Dr. Erin Warford, Canisius Classics Department.
