From 30 July to 12 August 2014, the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki organizes a summer school at the summer camp of Kalandra, Halkidiki, Greece, a beautiful and secure place next to the sea, which offers a warm and welcoming environment and a unique experience of nature and culture, as it is situated near Thessaloniki and the archaeological sites of Dion, Vergina and Mount Athos.
The two-week course is designed for participants from all backgrounds, those who are already well-read in and those who are just starting out, with the purpose of getting them acquainted with studies in the fields of Greek Philosophy, Greek History and Archaeology, Ancient Drama, Ancient Technology, Architecture and Ecology, Astronomy and Mythology.
The lively exchanges of views and the summer camp experience make this brief, intense period of study, an extraordinarily and enriching experience. Each weekday will consist of five hours of teaching in the morning, by distinguished speakers, largely from within the University, followed by general lectures as well as cultural activities and a Greek language course (1h.30/day) in the afternoon.
Also, there will be organized tourist and cultural visits to the beautiful beaches of Halkidiki and places of cultural interest, such as Dion, Vergina and Mount Athos, all of which are designed to make participants familiar with Greek Culture and History.
THE ACADEMIC COURSE: ANCIENT GREEK PHILOSOPHY, ARCHAEOLOGY, ARTS AND TECHNOLOGY
