Join us for this study abroad, an intensive and up-close study of the archaeological sites, architecture, and visual arts of Greece and Italy, with an emphasis on the Bronze Age Aegean, Archaic and Classical Greece, Ancient Rome, and Renaissance Italy. After two weeks of preparation on campus in Olympia (remote options will be available for those not living in Olympia during these weeks), we will travel to sites on Crete, in southern Greece, Athens, Rome, and Florence to learn about the topography, monuments, art, and material culture of the region from antiquity through the Early Modern period. Faculty lectures and guided tours will complement our visits to sites, museums, churches, and other cultural institutions. The program will conclude in Florence, leaving students free to continue their travels in Europe.
Evergreen’s study abroad in Greece and Italy has usually come as the third quarter of the program. This program last ran in 2020-21, but we were unable to include the overseas travel. Students who have taken one or more quarters of Greece and Italy: An Artistic and Literary Odyssey Greece and Italy Odyssey Comparative Eurasian Foodways , Taste: Archaeology and the Ancient Mediterranean Word Play: Literature, Creative Writing, and Poetics of Catastrophe will be very well prepared for, and so will students from (2020)(2021-22), and (2021-22).
