‘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.
Like every year, CYA participated in the Annual NAFSA 2019 Conference & Expo which took place at the end of May, in Washington, D.C.
CYA President Alexis Phylactopoulos and CYA administrators from Athens and the North American office had the opportunity to meet with study-abroad partners and colleagues, while also exploring new potential collaborations.
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.
