What is it like to live and work in Greece for a year? John Haberstroh will share his experiences as a Regular Member at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens (ASCSA). As an ancient historian immersed in the world of classics and archaeology, John will offer his perspectives on the benefits of travel, discuss his first experiences on an excavation in ancient Corinth, and highlight underappreciated aspects of modern Greek life.
John Haberstroh is a PhD student in the history department at UC Riverside where he studies ancient Greek history. His dissertation focuses on the tensions between collective and local Greek identity in the sanctuaries of the northeast Peloponnese. John was the 2017-2018 Fowler Merle-Smith fellow at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens (ASCSA).
The event is free of charge and open to the public.
