Seminars and Workshops

Comparative Cultures Seminar

The Comparative Cultures Seminar is one of the oldest and most successful Harvard study-abroad programs. Divided between the ancient site of Olympia and Nafplio, it recently completed its thirteenth year. Led by Harvard Professor Gregory Nagy and a founding team of Harvard-trained Fellows, the program seeks to promote cross-cultural understanding by combining historical, literary, philosophical, and linguistic approaches to cultural exchange.

Participants worked in teams of 2-3 student and faculty members to contribute to the first complete edition of the Venetus A ever. 

Information about the 2016 workshop is forthcoming.

The High School Summer Program in Greece

The HSSP is an annual 16-day program held during the summer at the CHS in Nafplio. During the seminar, students from Greek high schools engage in a mixture of thought-provoking projects, presentations, field surveys, lectures, and teleconferences that are supplementary to the subjects offered in their school curriculum. Moreover, thanks to the help of special educational advisors of the Fulbright Foundation in Greece, greek high students are able to explore the options and opportunities they have for continuing their studies in american institutions of higher education.
