The issues of race in the ancient world compared to the issues of race today ( similarities and differences)

This class began with a summary of current theories of race and racialization, but the two main foci of the course were ancient Athens and ancient Israel. Reflect upon the issues of race presented in the readings and games throughout the semester. We will live in a world heavily influence by both the Bible and Greek philosophical ideas. How and where you see similar issues in our contemporary world? Pick one contemporary issue of race and view it through the lens of ancient Israel, ancient Athens, and the methodological issues used to conceptualize race and racialization. Equal space need not be given to all three, but all three must be addressed.
