A new summer course, Political Economy in Historical Context: From Ancient Greece to Modern Greek Crises was offered this summer with great success. Through a critical examination of the ancient Greek world, the course examines current issues and debates of international political economy and is based on experiential learning left uncovered by traditional on-campus curriculum.
CYA takes on contemporary Europe!
The summer session II course, MS385 Europe’s Multi-Dimensional Crisis: Migration, Economy and Security saw professors Ritsa Panagiotou, Angeliki Dimitriadi and Thanos Dokos lead students through a complex, multi-layered and at times interlinked exploration of the issues that impact the fabric and the very future of Europe.
Exploring the Mediterranean diet doesn’t get any better than this. The summer II Anthropology of Food Course taught by Prof. Aimee Placas saw students venture beyond the classroom to farms, vineyards, groves, restaurants, markets, museums, kitchens, sweet shops, cooperatives, NGOs, and festivals on a quest to experientially study food in Greece, on all levels.

See how Prof. Papadopoulos’ class, MS347 When Egypt meets the Aegean: Interconnections in the Bronze Age Eastern Mediterranean got in touch with their creative side during these exciting summer session II workshops.
A new addition to this year’s summer courses offered at CYA was Philosophy of Action and Knowledge, the first in our series of CYA Athens Philosophy Seminars led by Dr. Evgenia Mylonaki. This year’s APS was divided into three parts. In the first part of the seminar, students studied the works of Plato, Aristotle, Descartes, Locke, Hume, Wittgenstein, Davidson, Anscombe, and contemporary philosophers of action and knowledge.
Imagine an Athenian streetscape with dogs, and cats stretched out in the summer sun, mid-morning pedestrian bustle, old ladies clutching bags loaded with paper parcels of fish, scooters, and cars buzzing about. Unknown passersby greeting you while weaving through alleys on foot. Market traders shouting out within an overwhelming labyrinth of fresh fish, meat, vegetable stalls, and delicatessens, cured meat, flowers, herbs and spices flashes of bright colors and a rich blend of aromas permeating the air….
