            The Ionian University, Corfu, Greece offers an intensive two-week summer course (7/1-7/13/2019), 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 program will offer 3 ECTS= 1,5 US Credits.          

            A second course will also be offered for intensive language classes in ancient Greek, four-hours per day, which will be available for all levels of language proficiency (introductory, intermediate and advanced). These classes will take place in Corfu from July 15 to July 20 2019. The language instruction program will offer 2 ECTS= 1 US credit. Students can register for either or both courses. Instruction for both courses will be in English. For more information please check https://sites.ionio.gr/classics/or contact
