Course: Drawing in Greece and Rome

The Kentucky Institute for International Studies (KIIS) will
sponsor its seventh annual ATHENS AND ROME program this summer, from
May 24 to June 29.

This is a five-week study and travel program open to all students over
the age of 18. Students (and alumni) in the KIIS consortium
colleges are given priority for admission and do not pay extra fees. The
KIIS consortium includes many Kentucky colleges, along with Ball State
(Indiana), Antioch (Ohio), and Middle Tennessee State University.

This program is unique (as far as we know) in offering a summer study
program that travels to both Greece and Italy.

The program will travel to Athens, Naxos, Mykonos, Delos, Delphi,
Olympia, Mycenae, Nafplion, and Epidauros in Greece; Paestum and
Pompeii in Italy; and end with 12 days in Rome.

Each student will register for one or two courses and earn 3 or
6 hours of credit. There is no prerequisite or language requirement.
The course offerings are as follows:

Boris Zakic of Georgetown College will offer Beginning and
Advanced Drawing. Zakic is an up-and-coming artist whose work has met with
national acclaim. He currently has a show at the Fraser Gallery
in Washington, D.C., and you can see his work on their web site:


Chris Shea of Ball State University will offer "Day to Day in
Ancient Greece and Rome" (HIS 390-2) and "Myth and Mythmaking in
Ancient Greece and Rome" (ENG 330-2).

You can learn more about Prof. Shea at:


John Svarlien of Transylvania U. will offer "Ancient and Modern
Travelers," a look at travel and tourism in the ancient world.
(HIS 390-1)

Diane Arnson Svarlien of Georgetown College will offer "Ancient
Drama" (ENG 330-1).

airfare from Cincinnati, or $3110. without air travel. There is an
additional fee of $300. for out-of-consortium participants. Teachers in
Kentucky are exempt from this fee.

American School of Classical Studies at Athens, SUMMER 2004

June 9 through July 4, 2004

The American School of Classical Studies at Athens announces a
special program for 2004.  Because Athens is hosting the Olympic
games in August 2004, the regular Summer Sessions in Greece will not
be offered.  Instead, the School is sponsoring a special program in
Turkey, to explore the sites and monuments of this ancient land.
This single, 26-day session is designed for those who wish to become
acquainted with Asia Minor and its antiquities, and to improve their
understanding of the relationship between the monuments, landscape,
and climate of the country and its history, literature, and culture.
The program will concentrate on the Greek and Roman sites of western
and southern Asia Minor, although attention will be given to the
Neolithic and Bronze Age sites of the Anatolian plateau, the
Byzantine monuments of Istanbul and Cappadocia, and the monuments of
the Selçuk and Ottoman cultures that ultimately led to the formation
of modern Turkey.  In 2005 the ASCSA will return to the regular
Summer Sessions in Greece.

Enrollment is open to graduate and advanced undergraduate students
and to high school and college instructors of classics and related
subjects and is limited to 26 participants.

The program will be spent entirely in travel throughout western and
central Turkey.  Areas that will be covered during the program
include Istanbul and environs, Galatia, Cappadocia, the Anatolian
Plateau, Pamphylia, Lycia, and the Ionian Coast (consult the website
http://www.ascsa.edu.gr for more details on the itinerary).  Each
participant will present one or more "on-site" oral reports on
assigned topics.

Fees for the 2004 program are $2,000.  This includes tuition, room
for the entire 26-day period, domestic travel within Turkey, and
museum and site fees.  International airfare to Istanbul, most meals
(excluding breakfasts), and incidental expenses are the participant's
responsibility.  A limited number of scholarships are available
through the School.  They are awarded on the basis of academic merit.

The Director for ASCSA Summer 2004: Ancient and Medieval Turkey is
Professor Charles Gates, Bilkent University, Ankara.

Applications require transcripts and letters of recommendation.
Application forms and scholarship information will be available after
September 5, 2003 and may be requested from:
