Study Tours of Greece: Texts in Context 
Educational trip for HUM 216-219 students who wish to deepen their knowledge of Greece 

Fall Break 2019

The Princeton University Council of the Humanities and Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies invites students who successfully complete HUM 216-219 during the 2018-2019 academic year to apply to spend the Fall Break 2019 in Greece. This trip will offer the opportunity to build upon the classroom experience through first-hand exposure to Greek history and culture. Only those students that have completed both semesters are eligible to apply.  
Students of HUM 216-219 have spent an intensive year studying texts and images. This academic trip offer the opportunity to deepen and expand the HUM 216-219 classroom experience through immersion in a variety of ancient, medieval and modern contexts. This trip aspires 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.
