Scholarship for First Year Sophomore Junior Senior at Columbia College, USA
Job Description: Columbia is pleased to announce a new summer study abroad fellowship for summer 2010 (dates June 25–July 15) with Columbia alumnus Greg Wyatt at the ancient site of Ephesus. The purpose of this summer workshop will be to introduce students to the reflective thought and artistic practices required to draw and paint ancient Greek sites in situ. This workshop will be led under the supervision of Greg Wyatt, Columbia ’71.
Days will be spent in a combination of lectures, field work, and daily artistic practice amidst the ruins at Ephesus. Students will be expected to have an interest in the visual arts, classics, archaeology, architecture, and history. Their time will be enriched through the short term coursework offered through the Crisler Library and their partner organization the Austrian Archaeological Institute. Topics to be addressed in the coursework include the cult and politics of the ancient city, the restoration and conservation of monuments, and the history and topography of Ephesus among many others. Students will be expected to keep a daily journal. They will also be expected to produce a final body of artistic work that will be displayed upon their return.
