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).

The bottom line: the program fee is $3880. including round-trip
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.
