The Humboldt Chair of Digital Humanities at the University of Leipzig is starting a Sunoikisis Program in Europe in collaboration with Sunoikisis at the Center for Hellenic Studies. Sunoikisis Europe will be based in Leipzig and will offer courses in digital humanities for students of Greek and Latin. Sunoikisis Europe will run every Spring (starting from 2015) and the program will enroll both American and European students, who will be able to take the courses both remotely and by visiting Leipzig. The Sunoikisis Europe team is led by Bridget Almas, Marie-Claire Beaulieu, Monica Berti, Gregory R. Crane, and Uta Kremer.
We have scheduled a Sunoikisis planning seminar in Leipzig on February 16-18, 2015 in order for the faculty to meet and develop the upcoming year’s course. Given that Perseids (http://perseids.org) will be a platform for developing the courses, the Sunoikisis Europe planning seminar will be held in conjunction with a Perseids workshop and the discussion will be arranged according to the following agenda:
Monday, February 16
Morning: Presentation of Sunoikisis CHS and Sunoikisis Europe
Afternoon: Working on the syllabus for Sunoikisis Europe (Spring 2015)
