Course Development Seminars

Apply now to participate in the Sunoikisis course development seminars at the Center for Hellenic Studies (CHS) in Washington, D.C. The CHS will host two seminars in June to plan the inter-institutional, collaborative courses for the fall semester:

June 9-11, 2013
Greek Lyric Poetry with Professor Gregory Nagy (Harvard University)

June 13, 2013
Common day session for all seminar participants 

June 14-16, 2013
Latin Literature from the Early Republic with Professor Niall W. Slater (Emory University)

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:

  1. Those who will be offering the course for undergraduates at their institutions in the fall of 2013 will receive first priority.
  2. Second priority will go to new faculty members, i.e., those who are emerging from graduate programs to take up their first teaching posts.
  3. Those who have never attended a seminar sponsored by Sunoikisis will receive third priority.

Seminar 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 and room and board at the CHS.

The CHS will stream and record the course development seminars. In addition to completing the seminar application, applicants should also complete the media release form.
