The theme of 'translation' and 'reading cultural landscapes' have, in the past,
been demonstrated literally by the DSC's guided exploration
of the landscape and cultural history of the island of Corfu, the
archaeological site of Butrint in neighbouring Albania, and the native
village of Nicholas Gage at Lia on the Greek mainland in the mountain
region of Epirus.
Walking tours of Corfu Town allow participants to appreciate
the architecture of colonisation in its socio-cultural and political
effects. These tours are complemented by field classes to cultural and
historical sites, such as monasteries, folk museums, mediaeval villages, a farm
specialising in breeding endangered species, the White House at Kalami
(Lawrence Durrell's home 1935-39), and the 'Chessboard fields,' where
Gerald Durrell began his zoological explorations.
