TAU Life: Third Year Academic Schedule
The course listings for next year are finally available, and I've composed a tentative schedule already. Here it is, in case some of you are interested:

First Semester

- Intermediate Latin (Dr. Hoffer)
- Thucydides [in Greek] (Dr. Zelnik)

General Theory of Literature:
- Jane Austen's Art of the Novel (Mr. Segal)
- Henry James's Short Stories (Dr. Yacobi)
- T.S. Eliot (Dr. Renan)
- 20th Century Russian Satire (Ms. Chudnovski)

Bonus: I might sit in on Prof. Barkay's Intro to Christianity from Jesus to Jean D'Arc. This past year I took Prof. Katz's Intro to Chr. 1324-2004, so this course would complement that one.

Second Semester

- Advanced Latin (Dr. Hoffer)
- Feast and Symposium Poetry [in Greek] (Prof. Zagagi)
- Livy [in Latin] (Prof. Price)

General Theory of Literature:
- Reading Poetry Aloud (Dr. Ratok)
- Alice in Wonderland: Logic, Language, and Fiction (Prof. Sternberg)
- Eros and Politics in Greek Literature (Dr. Shabtai)
- Translation Workshop (Dr. Hacohen)

Bonus: I hope to sit in on a tutorial on Medieval Society with Prof. Elgazi, and on Dr. Neumann's Intro to Nazism (his title).

Also, sometime along the year, I shall be taking my Greek Colloquium [gulp], i.e. final verbal exam.

Current Mood: excited
Current Music: Ehud Banai -- Golden Calf [live]

I had Liza Chudnovski, if this is the same one, teach us Literature in the 11th grade. She was quite nice, as I remember, though I was hardly focused on the schoolwork at that point in time.

Very cool schedule

If all turns out well, I'll be taking the Ran Hacohen Translation Workshop too.

(I saw there is also a Yael Renan Translation Workshop? Any idea which is better?)

Re: Very cool schedule

I don't like Ran Hacohen much, but he's very well liked by most.
Yael Rana is a very nice person and a great, great translator, but not the best teacher.
Myself, I would go for Niza Ben-Ari's Translation Workshop. I took Translation Theory with ehr and it was one of the best classes I had last year.

Hi! I finished my B.A. in General Literature at TAU a year ago. At that time I was looking for this course (about Alice), but I couldn't find it. I know it should be about paradoxes of Zenan, Achilles and the turtle et cetera. It should be lots of fun!

I even prepared a bibliography list about Carroll (his writings and works about him) in case I found the course. Some of the names are in Russian, but those in English could be helpful. http://www.livejournal.com/community/lewis_carroll/12305.html
