The International Cavafy Summer School is a major international annual scholarly event organised by the Cavafy Archive and the Onassis Foundation, the first such event to be devoted exclusively to Cavafy and the impact of his work. The theme for the first year is Cavafy in the World.
The International Cavafy Summer School 2017 will focus on Cavafy as a figure of World Literature, and will be convened by Dimitris Papanikolaou (Oxford) and Stathis Gourgouris (Columbia); tutors will include Natalie Melas (Cornell), Maria Boletsi (Leiden), Karen Emmerich (Princeton), Michael Warner (Yale), Gregory Jusdanis (Ohio State) and Patrick McGuinness (Oxford).
A selected group of 15 junior scholars will have a unique opportunity to attend world-class talks and to showcase new research. Doctoral students, postdoctoral researchers and early-career academics whose work relates to the fields of Comparative Literature, World Literature, Gender Studies, Cavafy Studies, Greek Studies and related areas, and who would like to take part in the International Cavafy Summer School are encouraged to apply by Monday 20th March 2017.
