Trip Highlights

Join us for this unparalleled and comprehensive nine-day Aegean odyssey to the very cradle of Western civilization and the classical world. Cruise roundtrip Athens, Greece, aboard the exclusively chartered, newest Five-Star small ship Le Bougainville. Call on the islands of Delos, Mykonos, Patmos, Rhodes and Santorini, and the Peloponnese Peninsula. Visit the extraordinary wonder of Meteora, where 14th- and 15th-century monasteries stand high atop soaring natural sandstone pinnacles, and walk through legendary sites of antiquity — including the ancient citadel of Mycenae and historic Epidaurus. Enjoy guided tours in these storied destinations, free time to encounter their mysteries and delights at your own pace during the best time of the year, and opportunities to visit seven magnificent UNESCO World Heritage sites. Meet local residents during the specially arranged Island Life Forum for a personal perspective on the true character of the Aegean Sea’s maritime culture.

Sherrie Kossoudji

Sherrie A. Kossoudji is an associate professor in the School of Social Work and an adjunct associate professor in the Department of Economics. Her principal research is on issues related to migration and immigration around the world. She has written numerous articles on the legal status of immigrant workers in the United States and the incentives to cross the border clandestinely. Much of her work attempts to discern the link between legal status in the United States and economic outcomes. She has also written on the impacts of legalization/regularization policies on undocumented residents in different countries. Her teaching also explores the impact of immigration policies. Contested Borders, a mini-course that examines ‘policy on the ground’, takes place at the U.S./Mexico border. She recently started a project on refugee movements and asylum policies around the world. At the moment, there are more than 65 million forcibly displaced people, 21 million of whom are refugees, whose lives are at risk as countries rethink their refugee policies.
