Siracusa Summer Seminar in Ancient Greek Philosophy

Siracusa Summer Seminar in Ancient Greek Philosophy July 18 – 29 2022

This seminar mixes the best aspects of a philosophy conference and a classical language summer school. The program combines cultural activities and ancient Greek language study (at two levels) with academic lectures and presentations. Those who wish may also contribute to a planned volume containing a translation with facing Greek and essays presented at the seminar.

Phillip Mitsis of NYU will be Guest Professor and Plato’s Euthyphro will be the topic. Participants study in the historic Palazzo Francica Nava on the picturesque island of Ortigia, just steps from the 5th century BCE Temple of Athena, and a short walk from the 6th century Temple of Apollo — or the Cala Rossa beach, in case you are in the mood for a swim.

The program fee is €499 for one week; €980 for both weeks (exclusive of housing). Sponsorships/bursaries will be available on a competitive basis. March 15 is the early application deadline (necessary if applying for financial aid); May 15 is the deadline if submitting an abstract for presentation.
