Hello from Greece!

CYA's Virtual Lectures Series is delighted to kick-start this fall season
with another enticing lecture.  This upcoming Wednesday *16 September 2020,
at 12 p.m. (EDT) / 7 p.m. (Athens)*, CYA invites you to virtually attend a
lecture on Democracy in ancient Athens with guest speaker CYA Trustee
Emeritus, Prof. *John McK. Camp II*, Director of the Athenian Agora
Excavations at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens.

Dr. Camp will review ancient Athenian democracy, as we understand it from
the agora excavations, and compare it with modern versions, including a
consideration of what could usefully be re-instituted from antiquity.

Facilitating the discussion will be John Karavas, professor of Archaeology,
who teaches the CYA courses: *Sports, Games & Spectacles in Graeco-Roman
World*;* Ancient Macedon to Death of Alexander the Great*; *To the
Strongest: The Ancient Near East from the Death of Alexander to the Coming
of Rome;* and CYA's three-week intensive field course *Excavations at
Aixonidai Halai: Voula Field School.*


To participate in this live discussion, please register on Zoom today.
