CYA professor Ritsa Panagiotou, who teaches ECON 326, Crisis and Change in Greece and Europe, and PSCI 363, The European Union: Challenges and Strategic Choices, provides her students exciting opportunities both in and out of the classroom.
‘Anscombe at 100: on Action and Living Well’ International Conference, organized by CYA-College Year in Athens and ACPA-American Catholic Philosophical Association and , took place in Athens on 15-16 June.
On the occasion of the one-hundredth anniversary of the birth of Elizabeth Anscombe, one of the most significant philosophers of the twentieth century, an international group of scholars presented papers that investigated how Anscombe understands the differences and connections between theorizing about human action and theorizing about ethics or living well.
The 3rd Annual CYA Student Conference “The Iconography of Power: Art, Politics, Propaganda & Religion in the Mediterranean across Time” took place on May 2-3, 2019.
The conference stimulated a broad-based and multi-disciplinary discussion on the fundamental role of images in shaping ideologies, beliefs, and identities. The temporal focus of the papers extended from the 5th c. BCE to the present, and topics ranged from the study of statues and monumental structures to examination of modern day photographs and feminist graffiti daubed on the walls of contemporary Athens.
This 3rd student conference involved a record number of participants, and its success proves that an event which started as an academic experiment has now become a CYA institution.
CYA will be exhibiting at the NAFSA Annual Conference – May 26-31, 2019, in Washington, DC. We have a lot of exciting news to share, and we can’t wait to talk about the academic and extracurricular opportunities CYA offers to students. Meet us at booth #530 during Exhibit Hall hours or email us to schedule a meeting.
Alumni, Friends, & Partners of CYA are cordially invited to a reception at the National Postal Museum in Washington, DC. on May 30, 2019.
We look forward to seeing you at DC!
Hi everyone! My name is Jayla Stevenson and I am a Senior at Wellesley College studying Philosophy and Africana Studies. In the Fall of 2017 I had the amazing opportunity to study abroad in Athens, Greece with College Year in Athens. The following summer I returned to Greece for a summer course with CYA entitled “Philosophy and Film.” I currently represent the program as an ambassador working with my study abroad office to prepare and encourage students to study abroad. These opportunities have afforded me life-long friendships and connections.
CYA recently sponsored my attendance at the Diversity Abroad Conference in Boston, MA where I was further motivated to think about my study abroad experience and career trajectory. The event was part of the 5th annual Global Leadership Summit (GSLS): the premiere conference for students from diverse backgrounds who have participated in study abroad programs. This conference, intended to develop skills as it relates to being a global citizen and preparing students to delve deeper into identity formation abroad, exceeded my expectations. It took place over a short weekend and during that time I was introduced to potential life-long partnerships and students who are committed to bettering our world through activism.
