Subject: [Advisers] Study-Abroad in Greece
The Athens Program is accepting applications to assemble 15 dedicated student
scholars for a special research program in Greece this Summer!
DATES: August 11 to September 12, 2009
OVERVIEW: The Athens Program from the Jackson School of International Studies
seeks 15 dedicated student scholars interested in contributing to the body of
knowledge in social sciences. Students live and work out of the comfortable
Norwegian Institute in Athens near the famed Acropolis, and are engaged in
ethnographic study of the emerging civil society and civic engagement in Greece
– specifically, how digital technology such as cell phones and email
encourage civic participation. Students are expected to gather and analyze
data, and present their findings in a conference-like setting at the end of the
program. This is a challenging but immensely rewarding program. There is
extensive field work with Greek students, as well as Greek social activists,
media practioners, local residents, scholars and government officials.
