Go local in Split and cook some coastal cuisine with Croatian villagers as you partake in country festivities.

Sample vintage vino at a renowned winery in Santorini, where the house-dotted cliffs are the perfect backdrop for a glass of Brusco.

UCLA Faculty on Tour

Kathryn Morgan
Department of Classics
Kathryn Morgan is chair of the UCLA Department of Classics and teaches courses on ancient Greek literature, mythology and culture. Her most recent book focused on the praise poetry of Pindar (5th c. B.C.) and the way poetics and mythology merge to create positive image of monarchy for Pindar's royal patrons. Morgan is currently beginning a new project on how the historian Thucydides and the philosopher Plato use historiography to advance particular and competing views of the world. She has a longstanding interest in the interactions of ancient Mediterranean civilizations, particularly in the realm of mythology, and regularly teaches courses that explore the movement of mythological narratives across space and time, from stories of the great goddess to the complications involved in investigating the myth of Atlantis.
