FOR POSTGRADUATES AND EARLY CAREER SCHOLARS OF GREEK ARCHAEOLOGY (INTENSIVE)
Athens, 2nd – 20th November 2015
Following last year’s successful pilot, the Irish Institute of Hellenic Studies at Athens will be holding a three-week intensive course in November 2015.
Reading modern Greek bibliographical sources has become indispensable for any research postgraduate student or scholar of Greek Archaeology. The course aims at increasing the non-native Greek researchers’ understanding of the modern Greek language used in archaeological publications, from excavation reports and object catalogues to theoretical studies, and from current demotic Greek to katharevousa.
The venue will be the IIHSA premises, 51A Notara St, Athens. Lessons will take place on three evenings per week (x 2 hours) over the three-week period.
The teacher will be archaeologist and philologist Dr Vassilis Petrakis. The course, which will be taught through English, will use a tailor-made Reader. The choice of texts will take into account the students’ research interests as far as possible.
The fee is € 200 for the three-week course. The course is open to all postgraduates/early career scholars with a working knowledge of modern Greek or those who have also been attending an intensive general course in modern Greek. One academic reference will be required. Up to 5 credits may be granted to students in consultation with their University departments.
Limited accommodation will be available in the IIHSA premises for the duration of the course.
