Play the Athens Game of “Reacting to the Past” in Athens
Greece

There is still room for you!  The deadline is March 31. This
program is open to all students (not just honors)

The Classics Department and the Honors Program at the
University of Georgia are sponsoring a “Reacting Abroad”
program in Athens, Greek this Maymester (May 21 - June 10
2006)—three unforgettable weeks reinventing democracy in its
famous birthplace.  “Prepare to take a real walk from the
Peiraeus to the site of the first Ekklesia at the Pnyx,” the
Gamemaster (in the guise of Athena) will tell the 18
students who embark on this pedagogical adventure.  We will
be in the city where all the events we are enacting really
took place 1400 years ago!

“Reacting to the Past”—an integrative and active approach to
learning—is an award-winning pedagogy that provides a deeply
historicized approach to important texts in the humanities
and to critical moments in world history.  In Reacting
classes, students are encouraged to make the imaginative
leap to understand what the texts meant to those who read
them at charged moments in the past.  The students achieve
this through sustained role-playing.  They work in factions
or as individuals and have specified goals which they pursue
through active research and debate with one another and the
writing of papers.   “The Threshold of Democracy, Athens 403
BCE”—one of the most popular Reacting Games—begins at the
moment when the Thirty Tyrants have been expelled from
Athens.  Students deliberate, in character, on the issues of
the day, determining the future of Athens and recreating the
intellectual dynamic of one of the most formative periods in
history.

The UGA faculty teaching Reacting Abroad are Dr. Nancy
Felson and Dr. Keith Dix.  Dr. Naomi Norman will guide some
of the site visits in Athens and its countryside.  In a
second course, Ancient Athens, students will explore the
physical settings in which Athenian democracy developed and
flourished, especially the Agora, Pnyx, and Acropolis, and
will examine the archaeological, literary, and historical
evidence used to reconstruct Athenian life and
institutions.  The Reacting course satisfies Area F in
numerous departments; the Ancient Athens course has no
prerequisites and will dovetail with the Reacting course.
