2010 Greece Classics Summer Seminar

Program Overview

The Greece Classics Summer Seminar or the American School of Classical Studies at Athens (ASCSA) Summer Sessions’ is a six-week intensive introduction to Greece from antiquity through the modern period. The program is open to U.S. high school or college teachers of Greek, Latin, Ancient Studies, or the Classics. The program emphasizes the topography and monuments of Greece in their historical context, the interpretation of literature and historical writings, and how ancient sources may be used to interpret archaeological discoveries.

2010 Italy Classics Summer Seminar

Program Overview

The Classical Summer School is designed to provide its participants with an understanding of the development of the ancient city of Rome and its immediate environs from the earliest settlements to the age of Constantine through a careful study of material remains and literary sources. The eight-week program is open to high school teachers of Latin, Greek or Classical Studies. The development of architecture, sculpture, painting, the ‘minor’ arts, and inscriptions of the republican and imperial city will be studied as they reflect the continuous expansion of Roman power and cultivation. Participants in the program will learn to read the material remains by becoming familiar with the techniques of interpreting ancient city planning, architecture, and the various forms of art. The second phase of the program is conducted by the Vergilian Society at Cumae and focuses on the social history of ancient Greeks, Romans, and others along the Bay of Naples.

All travel and program expenses are supported by U.S. Department of State and the Fulbright Commissions in Athens and Rome and administered by American Councils for International Education, the American School of Classical Studies at Athens and the American Academy in Rome and the Vergilian Society at Cumae
