COURSE DESCRIPTION

Living Greek Online is an intensive online Ancient Greek experience designed to bring the dynamic experience of Paideia’s Living Greek study-programs to an online environment. The program includes daily intensive reading and discussion of Greek texts from across the history of Greek literature. According to participants’ ability, the language of instruction is Attic Greek. In addition to the daily seminar sessions, the program includes online sessions designed to build students’ facility in speaking and understanding Attic Greek, as well as lectures and “virtual site visits” to sites that evoke the program’s theme.  

Due to the COVID-19 Crisis, Living Greek Online will focus on exploring texts relating plague and disease throughout the history of Greek Civilization. Authors read will include Homer, Sappho, Sophocles, Thucydides, Aristophanes, Hippocrates, Galen, Aelius Aristides, Anna Comnena, and more.
