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.
This 2-week summer seminar introduces students to the work of the Homer Multitext project. Participants work in teams of 2-3 student and faculty members to contribute to the first complete edition of the Venetus A ever.
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.
