Every June, Sunoikisis faculty gather at the CHS in Washington, D.C. to develop the upcoming fall semester courses. They hold two 4-day planning seminars, one for the Greek course and another for the Latin course, in order to develop the course syllabi. The 2016 courses will emphasize team-teaching. Whenever possible, two or more faculty will collaborate to design each week’s common session topic, reading assignments, and writing prompt. Throughout the planning seminars, faculty will be working with their common session partners to finalize their sections of the course syllabi.
The CHS will provide housing and board. Participants or their sponsoring institutions will be responsible for the costs of travel to and from the CHS. All participants will receive a stipend of $500.
The application deadline is extended to February 15, 2016. Learn more here.
