Study Tours of Greece and Rome: Texts in Context
Educational trips for HUM 216-219 students who wish to deepen their knowledge of Greece or Rome
Fall Break 2017
The Princeton University Council of the Humanities and Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies invites students who successfully complete HUM 216-219 during the 2016-2017 academic year to apply to spend the Fall Break 2017 in Greece or Rome. These trips offer the opportunity to build upon the classroom experience through first-hand exposure to Greek and Roman history and culture. Approximately 10 to 12 students will be selected to participate in each trip. Priority for the trips will go to students who have completed both semesters of the sequence, although those who completed only one semester are encouraged to apply.
Students of HUM 216-219 have spent an intensive year studying texts and images. These academic trips offer the opportunity to deepen and expand the HUM 216-219 classroom experience through immersion in a variety of ancient, medieval and modern contexts. These trips thereby aspire to provide both a sequel to the HUM course and a transition to further involvement in the Programs in Hellenic Studies and Humanistic Studies.
During an intensive week, we will visit sites, structures, artifacts and landscapes that resonate with the texts and themes of HUM 216-219, exploring art, religion, politics and history through interdisciplinary means. We will be just as concerned with the legacy of the classical in the radically changed medieval and modern worlds as with the classical itself.
