Courses: COMM 3306: International Communication Abroad and INTL 4944: Dialogue of Civilizations: Regional Engagement
The purpose of this course is to familiarize students with the people and the culture of Greece, from ancient times to the present. The special emphasis of this Dialogue is the Greek people and the economic crisis they face today. Students will attend lectures or events on the Greek economic crisis, Greek politics (present-day), culture (art, music, literature, film), and history (ancient and contemporary). In addition to the lectures and live events, students will visit historic and archaeological sites in the following venues: Athens, the Peloponnese, Crete, Santorini, Simi, Corfu,Cephalonia, Lias, and Meteora. At some of these sites, students will go on tours to antiquities such as the Parthenon, Mycenae, Epidaurus, Olympia, Lindos, Meteora, Knossos, The Achilleon Palace, Nafplion, Lias Village, etc. At other sites, students will interact with local citizens and students from around the world, discussing issues common to them and controversies affecting the region. During the course, students will maintain a photo-journal, write three book reports, and write two reaction papers on topics associated with lectures or places from our travels.
