2012 Course Development Seminars

Sunoikisis invites faculty members to attend the faculty development and planning seminars for the inter-institutional courses for advanced students of Latin and ancient Greek it will offer this coming fall. Participants will receive a $500 stipend, and the Center for Hellenic Studies (CHS) will provide housing and board. Participants or their sponsoring institutions will be responsible for the costs of travel to and from the CHS.

Latin 295/395: Latin Literature from Late Antiquity and the Medieval Period

The seminar for the Latin course will begin on Sunday, June 10, and conclude with a free day for research and finalizing the details of the course on Wednesday, June 13. Participants should plan to arrive on Saturday, June 9, and stay through Thursday, June 14, when both seminars will meet for a common day of discussions. Departures will be on Friday, June 15. Serving as the director of the course will be David Guinee from DePauw University. The consultant will be Bridget Balint from Indiana University.

Greek 291/395: Homeric Poetry

The seminar for the course on Homeric poetry will get underway on Friday, June 15, and conclude with a free day on Monday, June 18. Participants in the Greek seminar should plan on arriving on Wednesday, June 13, for the common day on Thursday, June 15, and departing on Tuesday, June 19. Directing the course will be Ryan Fowler, and the consultant will be Richard Martin from Stanford University.

Participation in each seminar will be limited to ten faculty members. 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, new faculty members, i.e., those who are emerging from graduate programs to take up their first teaching posts, and those who have never attended a seminar sponsored by Sunoikisis.
