Harvard University Honors Greek Culture

The Department of Classics George Seferis Chair of Harvard University has recently founded an award to celebrate success in Greek culture. This award, titled the International Award for Greek Culture, was the brainchild of Professors Panagiotis Roilos and Dimitris Yatromanolakis. Awards are given to winners in three categories: poetry, prose, and essay or scientific paper. While entries to both the poetry and prose categories must be in Greek, the essay or scientific paper may be written in Greek, English, Italian, German, French, or Spanish as long as it refers to an aspect of Greek culture. Beginning next year, a fourth category, that of music or musicology, will also be added.
This year, the deadline for submissions is September 30. Winners will be announced sometime in November and will be honored at a ceremony in December at the Athens Concert Hall.
