Summer School in Homer 2017 – UCL

Thanasis Gavos   17-21 July 2017 (apply by Monday 10 July)
Homer, summer classes, UCL

The Summer School offers five days of intensive teaching in Homer. There are five language and literature classes each day as well as lectures and other events, between 10.30 a.m. and 4.30 p.m. The fee is £110. The course is not residential. Bursaries and travel grants may be available for certain categories of students.


Students will be assigned to teaching groups of normally not more than 12-15 people. As far as possible, groups comprise students of roughly the same level of experience (beginners, intermediate or advanced). The style of teaching is friendly, but demanding: a lot of work is expected from students during the School, and they will find the whole experience both stimulating and valuable. Some classes concentrate chiefly on reading texts, while others offer a mixture of grammar and translation or commentary practice. Our tutors include some of the most experienced and talented teachers of Homer in the London area and beyond.


The Summer School in Homer will cater for a wide range of interests. It is expected that a substantial number of students from both schools and universities will apply, but also mature students who wish to learn Homeric Greek or learn more about the Homeric world. Our principal concern is to provide a thorough programme of language and literature learning in a lively university environment.
