Introduction

The Council of Independent Colleges and the Center for Hellenic Studies cosponsor an annual seminar on Ancient Greece in the Modern College Classroom for faculty members in all fields. The seminars, designed for non-specialists, are led by Gregory Nagy, Francis Jones Professor of Classical Greek Literature and professor of comparative literature at Harvard University and director of the CHS, and Kenneth Scott Morrell, associate professor of Greek and Roman Studies at Rhodes College, and director of fellowships and curricular development at the CHS. Offered every summer since 2005, the seminar provides faculty members the opportunity to extend their knowledge of ancient sources and to develop strategies for incorporating them into their courses.

See “Faculty Members Explore Athenian Drama in 10th Ancient Greek Seminar” in the fall 2015 edition of Independent.

Since the spring of 2014, in conjunction with Sunoikisis participants in the seminar and students from their institutions have been welcome to participate in inter-institutional, collaborative courses on the topics of the seminars.
