The Summer Seminars are 18-day sessions designed for those who wish to study specific topics in Greece and visit major monuments with exceptional scholars as study leaders, and to improve their understanding of the country’s landscape, history, literature, and culture. The seminars offered this year are “Aegean Networks of Technology” (June 6-24, 2022) and “The Northern Aegean: Macedon and Thrace” (June 30 – July 18, 2022).
