This seminar mixes the best aspects of a philosophy conference and a classical language summer school. The program combines cultural activities and ancient Greek language study (at least two levels) with academic lectures, participant presentations, and philosophical discussion.

Participants study in the historic Palazzo Francica Nava on the picturesque island of Ortigia, just steps from the 5th century BCE Temple of Athena, and a short walk from the 6th century Temple of Apollo—or the Cala Rossa beach, in case you are in the mood for a swim.

Faculty include George Gazis (Durham), Chiara Blanco (Edinburgh), and Heather Reid (Exedra)

The program fee is €499 for one week; €980 for both weeks (exclusive of housing)

March 15 is the deadline to apply for a scholarship/bursary

May 15 is the deadline to submit an abstract for presentation

Benefactors wishing to support a student in need are invited to register as a sponsor
