Epic & Epyllion - Organisation

There are two meetings scheduled (Mon 12-1, Ramphal Building; Thursday 4-5, H244) for each week of term (apart from Reading Week — Wk 6).

For those reading the texts in Latin there will be a further weekly meeting on Thursdays 12-1.

Generally the first meeting each week will be a lecture introducing new material; the second meeting will usually have a class/seminar format with topics discussed in the light of reading and questions distributed beforehand. However this basic scheme will vary occasionally, according to the nature of topics presented.

For a subject of this range, not all the material can be presented in lectures and classes. Students should therefore expect to do the prescribed reading and to have thought sufficiently about the issues to make constructive oral contributions.
