            The Ionian University, Corfu, Greece offers an intensive two-week summer course (1/7-13/7/2019), which focuses on seafarers in ancient Greece, including pirates, sailors and colonizers. The course explores the role of seafarers in mythical journeys, the colonization process and naval battles from the archaic to the Hellenistic age. Emphasis will be given to maritime religion, economy and landscape. The program will also take advantage of the location of Corfu incorporating trips to 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.

            A number of invited speakers will contribute to the program, while everyday visits to sites will give the opportunity to the participants to experience the remains of seafaring activities on the island. Although the program is open to undergraduates, MA students are also welcome to apply. The participants will be accommodated in the town of Corfu and they will have full access to the library resources and facilities at the Ionian University.  The participants will have the option for extending the program by one week in order to attend intensive language classes in ancient Greek, four-hours per day, which will be offered at all levels (introductory, intermediate and advanced). These classes will last from July 15-20 2019. Students can also register for the language program alone.  For more information please check https://sites.ionio.gr/classics/

Completed application forms should be submitted online by 31st March 2019.
