The Center for Hellenic Studies in Greece


Welcome to CHS GR

Harvard University’s Center for Hellenic Studies in Greece (CHS GR) is a unique international center that unites the humanistic pursuits of the CHS in Washington with the homeland of Hellenism.

The Nafplio Center has been equipped and uses cutting-edge technology to bring the academic resources of Harvard to Greece, and to foster collaboration between scholars of different nations to promote a greater understanding of Hellenic civilization.

The Center’s main mission is to support and promote the Hellenic civilization, and to bring together scholars studying these subjects, while it functions as a base of operations for scholars, students and researchers from Harvard as well as other academic institutions from the U.S., Greece, and elsewhere.

An important part of the Center’s mission is outreach, and for that reason the Center for Hellenic Studies in Greece offers a regular program of events and other activities addressed not only to Harvard and other academic institutions but also to the local community of Argolis region, the Peloponnese, and Greece in general. These initiatives include an annual series of events, innovative programs, exhibitions, performances, presentations, and digitization projects.

Moreover, the Center for Hellenic Studies also organizes, co-organizes, hosts and supports academic programs addressed to students from Harvard as well as other academic institutions from all over the world.
