This program, organized by Harvard's Center for Hellenic Studies, in partnership with Social Studies, funds up to 6 Harvard students to work as teaching fellows (TFs) in a seminar on Social Theory addressed to high school students, from July 2-17, 2020, in Nafplio, 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 2-17, in Nafplio, Greece).
Travel to Greece and accommodation in Nafplio are provided by the program. The TFs also receive a stipend to cover living expenses while in Greece. Concentrators from all Harvard departments are eligible, but Social Studies students are particularly welcome due to their studies’ relevance to the thematic areas of the summer program. The whole program is in English. No knowledge of Greek is required.
The deadline for applying is February 14, 2020.
