CYA will be hosting the first of it’s series of public lectures for 2017: “Bronze Age and Archaic Boeotia: New Research at Ancient Eleon” by Brendan Burke Associate Professor and Department Chair of Greek and Roman Studies at the University of Victoria and CYA Alumnus 1989.
I think we can all pretty much recognize a Greek tragedy when we see one. The classic three-part play detailing the rise and eventual downfall of the hero. And with that the perilous effects and disastrous consequences that follow.
During my first week here in Greece, Athens has led me to make so many new discoveries about the place and its culture. CYA has done an amazing job in integrating us students with the rich Greek life around us in a short amount of seven days. After taking my camera along and adventuring, here are a list of things I have discovered:
Welcome to Athens, Greece! The city that never sleeps, except between the times of 2 and 5pm. It has been a rocky start for me here in Athens, I will not lie, but as the days go by I am starting to settle into this foreign city I will be calling home for the next 4 months.
Dr. Evgenia Mylonaki CYA Professor of Philosophy, has had a paper recently published in the esteemed European Journal of Philosophy.
The paper titled: Action as the Conclusion of Practical Reasoning; The Critique of a Rödlian Account takes up the question of whether and in what sense action might be the conclusion of practical reasoning and argues against the answer provided by Sebastian Rödl’s account of practical reasoning. The online publication is currently on the Journal’s home page.
During CYA’s Winter session, students with a serious interest in Archaeology come to Athens two weeks before the start of the Spring semester to participate in a dig at a site associated with Aixonides Halai, one of the ten demes of ancient Attica, which is located in the modern town of Voula, a coastal suburb of Athens.
