Summer Internships in Greece

 

 

Summer Teaching Internship in Greece for Social Studies Concentrators

Harvard's Center for Hellenic Studies offers the opportunity for 4 Harvard University undergraduate students to work as teaching fellows (TFs) in a  seminar on Social Theory addressed to high school students, from July 6-22, 2017, in Nafplion, Greece, a small city on the Mediterranean coast with a rich cultural heritage. The seminar is entitled “Introduction to the Study of Humanity” and covers similar themes and texts to those of Social Studies 10. 

The TFs will have the opportunity to increase their knowledge and skills and to coordinate, guide, and support high school students with little or no previous exposure to university methods of studying texts, writing essays, conducting surveys, and preparing presentations. The fellowship includes two phases: the preparation of the seminar (March-April, in Cambridge MA), and the seminar itself (July 6-22, in Nafplion, Greece). Travel to Greece and accommodation in Nafplion are provided by the Center for Hellenic Studies. The TFs also receive a stipend to cover living expenses while in Greece. 

Concentrators from all Harvard departments are eligible, but Social Studies concentrators are particularly welcome due to their studies’ relevance to the thematic areas of the program. The whole program is in English. No knowledge of Greek is required. 

The deadline for applying is February 13, 2017.

Summer Cultural Internship in Greece

Harvard's Center for Hellenic Studies offers the opportunity for 4 Harvard University undergraduate students to work as interns at the Municipality of Nafplion (DOPPAT), Greece, from May 31 - July 5, 2017.

Nafplion is a small city on the Mediterranean coast with a rich cultural heritage. The interns will assist in creating and promoting English-language cultural materials and programming events central to the Municipality’s goal of supporting tourism and urban development. Harvard students will be paired with Greek students of similar age and academic background for the duration of the internship.

This internship is meant to be of particular relevance to students interested in urban studies, planning, and development. This year it is part of a pilot “engaged learning” program, through which students will complete both a work-related experience through the internship and also an academic component on urban studies for which they will receive Harvard credit. While in Nafplion, students will have weekly meetings to explore the interface between their internship work and the city’s history and goals for future development. They will also learn more generally about urban spaces and institutions, particularly in Greece and the European Union. They will have the opportunity to visit important Greek sites in Nafplion, Athens, and beyond. The internship will be followed by a directed study in the Fall of 2017, in which the students will build on their internship work to write a final paper (for which they will receive Social Studies credit). This directed study will be administered by Nicolas Prevelakis and Nicole Newendorp.

Travel to Greece and accommodation in Nafplion are provided by the Center for Hellenic Studies. The interns also receive a stipend to cover living expenses while in Greece. 

Concentrators from all Harvard departments are eligible, but Social Studies concentrators are particularly welcome due to their studies’ relevance. The whole program is in English. No knowledge of Greek is required. 

The deadline for applying is February 13, 2017.
