Welcome back!

January 02, 2020

After a restful holiday break, we’re back, ready to bring Greece’s history and culture alive for our students and communities of local, national and international supporters!

Upcoming events

We have an exciting month of events planned to start off the new year. Join us throughout the upcoming semester for the SNF Centre for Hellenic Studies Spring 2020 Seminar Series, beginning this month with Alessandra Capperdoni (SFU), Andreas Avgousti (SFU), and Kevin D. Fisher (UBC) who will be presenting their latest research. Seminars are held on SFU’s Burnaby campus in room AQ6229, beginning at 2:30pm. Be sure to join us afterwards at Club Ilia, where we continue the discussion over pizza and other nibbles.

Visit our events page for the rest of the semester’s line-up.
