New Modern Greek Studies Course Explores Humanitarian Crisis

Refugees and Migrants e pic generalDecember 16, 2016

Modern Greek studies professor, Dr. Elektra Kostopoulou, an expert in modern Greece and the Middle East who actively works with migrants and refugees affected by the humanitarian crisis in the eastern Mediterranean, is leading a brand new School of Arts and Sciences' seminar (anchored in the Modern Greek Studies Program, 489:390:02), "Refugees and Migrants in the Eastern Mediterranean," designed for students who want to learn and help make a difference. The course will be held on Thursdays from 4:30–7:30 p.m. in Hardenbergh Hall, Room B5.


The three-credit course isn't limited to Department of Greek Studies students. The class will be comprised of an interdisciplinary group of students who will learn about policy making, global justice themes, and history in an interdisciplinary environment. See a syllabus here.

Students who enroll in the spring 2017 course should consider continuing their studies and contributing to the effort in summer 2017 in the Island of Leros, where Dr. Kostopoulou is leading a service-learning abroad course. Service-learning abroad courses are intensive, credit-bearing study abroad programs with a community service component. For more information, see the Center for Global Education, the arm of the GAIA Centers that provides study abroad programming.
