We are excited you are joining us for the 2021 International Conference. The conference committee has some exciting conference opportunities they would love for you to participate in throughout the conference.
As part of the conference, we will have a live cooking demonstration sponsored by our host institution, the American College of Greece. Purchase your ingredients ahead of time and cook a traditional dish with us on June 23: grilled zucchini and homemade tzatziki!
If you want a head start, this recipe is a great introduction to traditional Greek flavors, and a light, refreshing start to your meal. All recipes will be shared before the conference so you have time to purchase the ingredients.
Acropolis Virtual Tour
The Acropolis of Athens and its monuments are universal symbols of the classical spirit and civilization and form the greatest architectural and artistic complex bequeathed by Greek Antiquity to the world. In the second half of the fifth century bc, Athens, following the victory against the Persians and the establishment of democracy, took a leading position amongst the other city-states of the ancient world. In the age that followed, as thought and art flourished, an exceptional group of artists put into effect the ambitious plans of Athenian statesman Pericles and, under the inspired guidance of the sculptor Pheidias, transformed the rocky hill into a unique monument of thought and the arts. The most important monuments were built during that time: the Parthenon, built by Ictinus, the Erechtheon, the Propylaea, the monumental entrance to the Acropolis, designed by Mnesicles and the small temple Athena Nike.
