Nisyros Pottery


During two weeks in the summer of 2019 (17-28 June 2019), a workshop for the 'Conservation and Physicochemical Study of Nisyros Shipwreck Pottery' will take place at Athens in 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 Underwater Antiquities at Athens and the Greek Research Center/Laboratory 'NCSR Demokritos' at Athens.

Summer School 2019 "Visual Ethnography of Cityscapes"

 Picture 2018 1

For the fifth consecutive year, the intensive and highly successful summer school Visual Ethnography of Cityscapes is taking place between 1-21 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 and the University of the Aegean.

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.
