“On the Shoulders of Giants”:
Greco-Roman Giants and their Modern Emulators

Employing an aphorism traceable in thought and language back to at least the twelfth century (nanos gigantum humeris insidentes, “dwarfs standing on the shoulders of giants,”), Sir Isaac Newton famously stated, “If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” As the Romans felt themselves intellectually to toil under the shadow of the Greeks, so have moderns since at least the Renaissance been keenly conscious of the magnitude and grandeur of the Greco-Roman achievement.
The organizers of the 2014 C.A.N.E. Summer Institute invite you to join us this summer as we examine some of the striking examples of the vitality and adaptability of the ancient models from the fields of literature, history, art and science; we will see that those who stand on such shoulders, though thereby “seeing further,” have often proven themselves to be a great deal more than “dwarfs.” Whether you are a middle school, high school or college teacher of Latin and/or Greek, English, History, or other related disciplines, an undergraduate or graduate student, or a devoted lifelong learner, you will enjoy an enriching educational experience that includes a wide variety of mini-courses, lectures, workshops, and special events while also offering ample opportunity for collegial interaction between participants.

ED | First MOISA International Summer School in Ancient Greek Music / 24- 28 June 2014, Trento (IT)

Seen on various lists:

I am delighted to announce that the first edition of the MOISA International Summer School in Ancient Greek Music is going to take place at the University of Trento, 24-28 June 2014. The Summer School aims at providing students
with a detailed and comprehensive overview of the most important scientific issues
involved in the study of ancient Greek music, both in terms of musical theory
and instrumental performance. The students will be introduced to the key theoretical
concepts necessary for these studies and to the bibliographic resources they
may use in order to continue their studies autonomously.

The School is designed primarily for university
students, both undergraduate and graduate, and for scholars interested in the
study of ancient Greek music. Given the interdisciplinary nature of the
subjects, the School may also be of interest to Secondary School teachers
wishing to enhance their backgrounds or acquire continuing education training.

The lessons will be taught in Italian and
English. Each session will be devoted to a specific question or sub-discipline
and will comprise a lecture followed by extended time for questions from the
students and additional observations/integrations to the lectures offered by
the other teachers. Great emphasis will be given to the importance
of this exchange between students and teachers as well as between the teachers
themselves, so as to create a fertile environment fostering high quality education.

At the end of the School, all the students will be given a certificate confirming their attendance to the Summer School. In addition, after passing the final test, each student will be granted 3CFU=ECTS by the University of Trento.

All the interested parties can apply for the
School by filling the enrolment form, which may be downloaded from the following website: http://ift.tt/1h7hz6y completed form should be sent to

Successful applicants will be notified by email by May 23 2014.

All the undergraduate and graduate students, as
well as members of staff of the University of Trento will be granted free
access to the School. All external applicants will have the
possibility to apply for the School paying a fee of 80 €. Alternatively, for a maximum of 20 people, it will be possible to
book a package including fees, board and lodging in a single room in the
University Halls for a total of 200 €. Requests for the package will be
accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. The availability of these rooms
will be confirmed to each applicant in the email confirmation of admission to
the School. More details on the application procedure may be found on the webpage of the School: http://ift.tt/1jg1vXl.
