Classical Languages Summer School in Sicily
Dr George Gazis and Dr Chiara Blanco will be leading the Classical Languages Summer School in Siracusa, Sicily, from 2-14 August 2021, covid permitting! Siracusa, with its great Greek heritage, is the perfect place to study the works of the past in the original languages – and to enjoy the Mediterranean lifestyle between classes.
The courses, dedicated to Ancient Greek and Latin language, will focus on philosophical texts during the first week and drama during the second week.
More details will be announced shortly: while we hope to be able to hold the course in person, it may also be possible to participate online.
Dr Gazis is Assistant Professor in Greek Literature at the Department of Classics and Ancient History, at Durham University. His research interests lie in Archaic Greek Poetry (mainly Homer), as well as Greek Lyric and Tragedy.
Dr Blanco is a Research Lecturer in Classics at Trinity College, University of Oxford. Her main research interests lie in the intersections between ancient literature (Greek tragedy in particular) and medicine, and she is also interested in the role of the senses and emotions in Greek and Roman culture.
