Every June the Sunoikisis faculty gather at the Center for Hellenic Studies (CHS) in Washington, D.C. to develop the upcoming year’s courses. They hold two 3-day planning seminars, one for the Greek course and another for the Latin course. The faculty also invite an expert in the subject area to participate in the seminars and to inform the reading of primary source materials.
2013 Program Information
Faculty will meet in June to plan the following courses for the fall semester:
Greek Lyric Poetry, June 9-11, 2013
Course consultant: Professor Gregory Nagy (Harvard University)
Common Day, June 13, 2013
Latin Literature from the Early Republic, June 14-16, 2013
Course consultant: Professor Niall W. Slater (Emory University)
The CHS will provide housing and board. Participants or their sponsoring institutions will be responsible for the costs of travel to and from the CHS. All participants will receive a stipend of $500.
Participation in each seminar will be limited to ten faculty members. The application deadline is April 1, 2013, and the seminar will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis, with the following priorities:
- Those who will be offering the course for undergraduates at their institutions in the fall of 2013 will receive first priority.
- Second priority will go to new faculty members, i.e., those who are emerging from graduate programs to take up their first teaching posts.
- Those who have never attended a seminar sponsored by Sunoikisis will receive third priority.
The CHS will stream and record the course development seminars. In addition to the seminar application, applicants should also complete the media release form.
