Description

CALENDAR DESCRIPTION:

Examines Alexander in the context of ancient history as well as his legacy, which provides unique insight into why there have been and continue to be illusive and deadly quests for world domination. Students who have taken HIST 391-4 D200 in Spring 2005, HIST 309-4 E100 in Spring 2006 or HIST 486 E100 in Summer 2007 may not take this course for further credit.

COURSE DETAILS:

This course is devoted to exploring the conquests and worlds of Alexander the Great – the worlds of the East that he encountered and conquered, and the new Greco-Persian world that he may have envisioned before his sudden and early death. The course is also about the ‘Internal World’ of Alexander himself, though the Great King will forever remain enigmatic, there are conflicting bibliographic portraits (ancient and modern) of the Great Conqueror.

Registrar Notes:

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://students.sfu.ca/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
