Summer School 2018 " Visual Ethnography of Cityscapes "


For the fourth consecutive year, the intensive and highly successful summer school Visual Ethnography of Cityscapes is taking place between 1-20 July at the Netherlands Institute at Athens (NIA) in collaboration with the Ethnographic Film Festival of Athens (Ethnofest) and VU University Amsterdam (VU). Teaching staff will be joining the school from the University of Amsterdam (UvA), University of Leiden, Panteion University, University of Aegean and the Heritage Management Organization.

It is apparent that today the visual, in all its manifestations, possesses a special place in the "world" of anthropology and social sciences. Besides the internal changes in the academia and the technological developments that have reshaped the relationship of anthropology/ethnography with the use of audio-visual means, the field of visual anthropology has by now expanded both in terms of scope and institutional role. These recent changes have not been thoroughly explored in the cityscapes of Greece. Although the social, political and economic transformations of the last years are being examined by social and political scientists, there is a need to add to our toolbox visual ethnography and visual anthropology in a more systematic way. In our summer school we are having a focus on the theoretical position of the visual within social/political theory and on the practical use of audio-visual means in the ethnographic process. In examining the use of visual methods, the courses will focus on both historical and contemporary examples of ethnographic film and photography.

Only outstanding students from all over the globe at last year BA, Master and first year PhD students can participate in the school. Students can apply by sending the application form to Dr. Tryfon Bampilis Dit e-mailadres wordt beveiligd tegen spambots. JavaScript dient ingeschakeld te zijn om het te bekijken. until the 15th of May 2018 and successful applicants will be notified by the 21st of May. The number of participating students is limited (max. 30 students), so we encourage early registration. Selecting criteria will apply.

Leiden-NIA Workshop ‘Conservation, documentation & physicochemical study of glazed ceramics’



During two weeks in the summer of 2018 (18-29 June 2018), a workshop for the 'Conservation, Documentation & Physicochemical Study of Byzantine and Post-Medieval Glazed Ceramics' will take place at Athens and at Chalkis (central Greece). The course will be organized by the Faculty of Archaeology, Leiden University (NL), in collaboration with the Netherlands Institute at Athens (NIA), the Ephorate of Antiquities of Euboea (Chalkis) and the Greek Research Center/Laboratory 'NCSR Demokritos' at Athens.
This workshop provides an unique opportunity for BA, MA, RMA and PhD students to gain more knowledge and a hands-on experience in Byzantine, Medieval and Post-Medieval pottery conservation. It guides the participants through the history and technology of Byzantine, Medieval and Post-Medieval pottery in Greece, and through stages of the study, conservation, restoration and documentation of archaeological artefacts. Both the theoretical and practical classes will be based on authentic pottery finds from recent excavations in the old city of Chalkis (modern Chalkida) on the island of Euboea. Finally, a first approach of physicochemical analyses will be presented.
All teaching will be in English
