International Cavafy Summer School 2020: open call

The International Cavafy Summer School is an annual scholarly initiative of the Cavafy Archive and the Onassis Foundation, focused on Cavafy, his work, and that work's impact in the world. It was inaugurated in 2017 and aims to enrich and strengthen participants' knowledge about Cavafy, pointing the way toward new directions and comparative approaches to the poet's work. Past themes have been "Cavafy in the World," "Cavafy and Antiquity," and "Cavafy's Orient/ations." The theme for July 2020 will be "Cavafy Mediated," inviting a focus on the myriad ways in which mediated forms and images of Cavafy's work have shaped readers' experiences of it.
