In an age of uncertainty, we see the rise of dramatic questions. What makes life worth living? Which path do we want our lives to take? If you are interested in these questions, please watch the video and consider joining the course Ancient Heroes: From Achilles to the Avengers (Spring 2021). The course is taught by Prof. Aldo Tagliabue (MWF, 11.40-12.30). We will have great fun exploring the lives of ancient heroes and heroines, and comparing them with heroes from Western movies and the Star Wars series, and with the lives of superheroes and superheroines. The class fulfills the literature requirement.
