It was a fabulous opportunity for our team to meet and dialogue with peers and leaders to discuss key issues, share and gain valuable insights on all areas of international education, student
services, research, and teaching - from a global perspective.
The Annual Conference & Expo of NAFSA: The Association of International Educators is the leading annual international education event. It was attended by 9500 registered attendees who had the opportunity to exhibit their study abroad programs and services and participate in sessions, workshops, poster fair presentations, and of course networking opportunities.
During CYA’s successful week at the NAFSA study abroad conference, we also hosted a wonderful reception for CYA alumni, friends, and partners at the Grammy Museum at L.A. Live on May 31st. Read more about the reception here.

How did it come to this? By exploring Greece’s “modern past,” we can get a better understanding of the present as well as appreciate a fascinating and not widely known sense of its historical
trajectory into the modern world.

H366: The Greek Jews: History, Identity & Memory, explores the history of the Greek Jews
from 1821 to the present, focusing on: their rich cultural and religious traditions; communal life; incorporation into Greek society and the events that shaped their lives – including the Holocaust
and its remembrance.
The Greek Jews include primarily two communities, the Romaniotes and the Sephardim. The Romaniotes have been present in the Greek lands for centuries and are considered the oldest Jewish community in Europe. The Sephardic Jews settled in the Greek lands after their expulsion from Spain in 1492. Their large concentration in Salonica – present-day Thessaloniki – made the city known as “Mother of Israel.” Students will study the evolution of this extraordinary blend of Jewish history and culture, its place in Greek society, the devastation endured in the Holocaust, and its survival and memorialization in present-day Greece and Israel.
Visiting scholar Professor Alexander Kitroeff (D.Phil U of Oxford) Associate Professor of History at Haverford University will be taking the course.
The lecture will highlight work of the Eastern Boeotia Archaeological Project (EBAP) focused on ancient Eleon, a little known site in eastern Boeotia approximately 12 km from Thebes. Work since 2007 has involved a regional survey and systematic excavations, part of which is run as an archaeological field school. The site has evidence from the early Mycenaean period in the form of elaborate burials, settlement levels from the Palatial and Post-Palatial phases of the late Mycenaean age, and monumental architecture and indicators of cult activity from the Late Archaic and early Classical period.

We are excited to announce a new series of Philosophy Summer Seminars in Athens (PSSA). The first seminar (June 5th – July 1st, 2017) will be on the topic of Philosophy of Action and Knowledge. We
are honored to welcome distinguished guest John Hyman from the University of Oxford.
The seminars are intended for outstanding undergraduate students who are considering a graduate career in philosophy.
The aim is to introduce students to graduate level work and expose them to the latest research in the field. Each PSSA focuses on one philosophical topic and culminates into a week long engagement
with a distinguished philosopher in the field, who will be presenting their latest research on the topic.
The seminars will take place at the CYA Academic Center located amidst a hub of archaeological sites such as the ancient river Ilissos, the Panathinaic Stadium and right across from the Acropolis hill.
We encourage upper-level philosophy students to apply now! Additional information can be found here.
