Course contents :  
« Rites funéraires et nécropoles en Grèce ancienne ». L'archéologie funéraire compose à n'en pas douter l'un des domaines d'études les plus vastes et les plus complexes qu'il soit possible d'envisager au sein des sociétés grecques antiques. Si les paroles et les gestes qui accompagnaient le mort au cours des cérémonies funéraires sont difficiles à restituer, les rites d'incinération ou d'inhumation, les formes et le decorum des tombes, ainsi que l'organisation des nécropoles ont en revanche été progressivement révélés par les archéologues. Il serait vain de vouloir établir des constantes ou, pire, de tirer des généralités de cette matière composite : les aspects chronologiques et géographiques jouent, plus encore qu'en d'autres cas, un rôle fondamental nécessairement augmenté de critères sociaux sélectifs. Au sein de ce cours, sera ainsi prise en compte - selon un développement chronologique - une série de nécropoles remarquables de Grèce propre et d'Asie Mineure, sans négliger les colonies de Grande Grèce et de Noire Noire, la Macédoine et les autres royaumes hellénistiques jusqu'au temps de la domination romaine. Autant de pierres de touche qui offriront de mettre en évidence les caractéristiques de chaque site, telles une série de variations sur un thème donné.
Learning outcomes of the course :  
The MASTERS courses (HAAR0060-1, HAAR0121-2, HAAR0122-2 et HAAR0123-2) are presented as occasional studies on a particular theme for which students' active participation is required. This consists of developing the fundamental knowledge and methodologies acquired during the three years of the Baccalaureat. Each session will be divided into two parts: a presentation of the subject followed by a critical discussion. This discussion should be prepared and led by the students. In line with the schedule set out at the start of the term, the last presentations on the subject could also be led by the most enthusiastic students. The aims of learning are research: thorough presentation and critical discussion of an object or argument.
Prerequisites and co-requisites/ Recommended optional programme components :  
None - bearing in mind that the History of Art and Archaeology of Greek-Roman Antiquity is only one element of the indissociable whole of the Sciences of Antiquity (history, philology and the history of religion).
Planned learning activities and teaching methods :  
For MASTERS students, other than the good habits developed during the years of the Baccalaureat (regular presence in class, analytical work and verification in the library), it is necessary to take a critical approach to the material presented in class. This involves prior preparation of the issues being studied in order to be able to contribute to the discussion and exchange information which has been collated. In some cases, students should also produce regular research and present it to the class. At this level of study, it is indispensable to produce, either individually or in groups, a blibliographical and iconographical database.
Mode of delivery (face-to-face ; distance-learning) :  
Lectures (illustrated by slides) for which students' active participation will be increasingly required (critical discussion and presentations)
Recommended or required readings :  
Given in the reading list provided at the start of the course, in particular :
- Marie-Christine Hellmann, L'architecture grecque. 2 / Architecture religieuse et funéraire, Paris 2006.
- Gherardo Gnoli and Jean-Pierre Vernant (dir.), La mort, les morts dans les sociétés anciennes, Cambridge-New York-Paris 1982.
- Donna C. Kurtz and John Boardman, Greek Burial Customs, Ithaca-New York 1971.
Assessment methods and criteria :  
Oral Exam (first and second sessions)
Work placement(s) :  
No placements are planned during this course.
Organizational remarks :  
The course will take place every week from Wednesday 5 February 2014, in line with the schedule which has been established (Mondays 9am to noon / Petit Physique). A break is planned in the second half of the session (http://cipl82.philo.ulg.ac.be/horaires).
