The Athens Institute for Education and Research (ATINER) announces its first ever summer course hosted in the vibrant capital of Greece. Spend two weeks in the summer of 2017 exploring the city and learning about central topics in art & architecture of Ancient Greece. Students (graduate and undergraduate) and non-students (practitioners, researchers, academics) who would like to learn about ancient Greek art and architecture are welcome to attend. The aim of the course is to introduce Athens’s arts and architecture from antiquity to modern times. The first week is devoted to arts and the second to architecture. In addition to regular (formal) 39 hours of lectures the course includes visits to most important sites of ancient and modern Athens and its surrounding islands (Hydra, Poros, Aegina) and archaeological sites (Acropolis, Parthenon, Delphi, Mycaenus, Epidaurus). Guest speakers and two roundtable discussions on the future of teachings and researching arts and architecture in a global world with invited speakers from different countries and different continents are also an addition to this course of study.

Hi everyone! I study design in the Netherlands, and I'm currently working on a research project on souvenirs! (Focusing on the city of Athens.) Souvenirs not only lack true value, there's a big chance your holiday relic has been made somewhere else! With your help I would love to design a modern souvenir of Athens; one that does the city justice! What objects should I think of? Materials? Naturally a culture is formed through history, but what modern representations would contribute? Any suggestions would be of great help!! Cheers, Sally D.
