Return |

Description

This two-week summer school focuses on various types of seafarers in ancient Greece, from pirates to sailors and colonizers. It explores their roles in mythical journeys, the colonization process and naval battles from the Archaic to the Hellenistic age. The summer school takes advantage of the location of Corfu incorporating trips to islands and locations of sea-battles, and inquiring about the role of ancient Corcyra in seafaring. Through a combination of in-class lectures and on-site teaching the students will be able to gain a deep understanding of the history of seafaring along with various aspects of the life of islanders in the ancient world. The students will also establish a good foundation in ancient Greek History, Art, and Religion.

The summer school consists of everyday lectures by invited scholars, experts in the field, along with visits to sites, which will give the opportunity to the participants to experience the remains of seafaring activities on the island. Although the summer school is open to undergraduates, MA students are also welcome to apply. In the latter case the requirements of the course will be adjusted accordingly. The participants will have full access to the library resources and facilities at the Ionian University. The summer school will offer 3 ECTS= 1.5 US Credits.
