Countercultural Philhellenes, Greek Shipping, and Cycladic Ruins in Fall Events at UCLA’s SNF Hellenic Center

September 25, 2020

LOS ANGELES — The University of California at Los Angeles’s Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) Center for the Study of Hellenic Culture, which formally launched in June, is offering a full fall schedule of events.

The Center’s events kick off on Saturday, September 26 with a lecture on how Greek shipping came to dominate global trade. They continue through October with regular talks related to archaeology in Arcadia, at Nikopolis, and on the island of Ios, and on the subject of a countercultural American woman in Greece in the early 20th century. Visit the Center’s Facebook page for details on how to register for each event.

The Center, a hub for teaching and research in anthropology, archaeology, art history, classics, digital humanities, Greek, history, and philosophy, received a foundational $5 million grant from SNF in 2017 and launched in 2020.
