CYA 2nd Annual Student Conference @ College Year in Athens / DIKEMES

“Concepts of Urban Design and Public Space in Greece Throughout the Ages”

CYA announces its 2nd Student Conference in Athens on May 2 and 3, 2018. We invite submissions from undergraduate students of CYA, U.S. institutions, and Universities in Greece.

The conference is designed to suit a broad based and multi-disciplinary discussion on varying aspects of both urban planning and utilization of public space in major urban centers in Greece from antiquity down to the modern age. Its primary aim is to provide fresh insight on the main human or material factors (including political, social, economic, religious and cultural ones) that determined the layout, change, development and evolution of public space within designated and specific civilian settlements; in addition, major emphasis will be placed on how these urban centers are being experienced by their inhabitants at the time, along with the usual tensions and challenges that manifest themselves during times of transition and change.

Students with a background across the multi-disciplinary board, from art and architecture, history and archaeology, to urban design and social sciences are more than welcomed to present.

Please submit abstracts of no more than 500 words -accompanied by a brief bio- by Friday 16 February, 2018. Applicants will be notified by Monday 12 March 2018. Submissions should be emailed to: tscourta@dikemes.edu.gr

CONFERENCE COMMITTEE: JOHN KARAVAS, CHAIR, CYA ANCIENT HISTORY PROFESSOR THEONI SCOURTA, CYA VICE PRESIDENT FOR ACADEMIC AFFAIRS MARIA VIDALI, CYA CONTEMPORARY URBANISM PROFESSOR

Thucydides the Athenian @ CYA Campus
Jun 27 – Jun 29 all-day

Thucydides the Athenian June 27 to 29, 2018

This conference seeks to put Thucydides back into his native city, exploring the man within his political and social circles, and delving deeper into the realities of Periclean policy and ideology.

An international group of scholars will address these questions through analyses of Pericles’ allies and enemies, and Thucydides’ staging of these characters in his narrative as they experience the post – Periclean legacy. Additionally, they will investigate the Periclean building program, and present new ways of using the evidence from the recently discovered cup inscribed byPericless and members of his Milieu.
