Dear Colleague,

I would like to inform you about our program in Athens, Greece, this summer. This 12 day visit of Athens will be a thoughtful exploration of the history and preservation and conservation issues facing the city, organized around a series of lectures and visits lead by some of the top Athenian archaeologists, architects, historians, conservators and planners who have been dealing with the problem of preserving monuments and cultural heritage in the midst of a growing modern city. Our deadline for applying is April 30, 2013.

The faculty of our program includes Dr. Manolis Korres, Chief Architect on the Acropolis Restoration Project, who will lead lectures and visits to the Acropolis area. Please visit our website and syllabus to see a complete list of faculty, lectures and visits.

The program is intended for people studying, or professionally involved in, the fields of: History, Archaeology, Architecture Art History, Architecture, Urban Planning, Anthropology, Conservation and Historic Preservation, but is also open for people with a general interest in preservation.

If you, or someone you know, are interested in this program you can get further information at our website. Thank you.
