Fall Semester 2017 saw CYA running a new Classics course The Greek Stones Speak: An Introduction to Greek Epigraphy, taught by prof. Robert K. Pitt, combining tours of inscriptions on sites and in museums around Athens with a series of classes on how inscribed texts can illuminate all areas of the Ancient World, including Greek dialects and early scripts, graffiti and magic, language formulae in state decrees and royal letters, and the interactions of Greek with other languages.
Religion is a subject in which people continue to vest powerful emotions. R350 Religions of the Middle East: A Comparative Approach, taught by prof. Despina Iosif is a course that examines the main teachings of three monotheistic religions of the Middle East: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and simultaneously explores how these teachings manage to affect the everyday lives of their followers.

Is it true that the Greeks see their own state as an enemy of sorts? Where can we trace Greece’s ambivalent feelings towards its western allies? Can analyzing Greek politics shed light into our understanding of the US political system?
Those are some of the questions addressed in Professor Gandolfo’s Fall semester class Contemporary Greek Politics and Society: Historical Perspectives on Change and Continuity.

Thucydides the Athenian @ CYA Campus
Jun 26 – Jun 28 all-day
Thucydides the Athenian June 26 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 by Pericles and members of his milieu.
