The Ambitious Boston University Philhellene Project

The Department of Classical Studies at Boston University in cooperation with the Program in Modern Greek, is proud to announce the Boston University Philhellenes (BUPh) project.

The project has three primary goals: Promoting the appreciation of Greek culture, promoting summer study in Greece that will permit students to learn the Greek language, and experience Greek culture and promoting scholarships for the study of Modern Greek at Boston University.

Such events encourage links between Boston University students and faculty, the Greek community of Boston, and the Boston community at large.

BUPh-sponsored events began on December 5, 2012 with the performance of Plato’s Apology of Socrates by the Greek Theater of New York.  This event, in cooperation with the Boston University Core Curriculum, the Department of Classical Studies, and the NEH Distinguished Teaching Professorship attracted a sold-out crowd to the Boston University Conference Auditorium.

On April 8, 2013 in Tsai Auditorium, the BUPh once again partnered with the Department of Classical Studies and the NEH Distinguished Teaching Professorship to sponsor the third annual concert by the Greek Music Ensemble.

The BUPh will be announcing more events promoting Greek culture and history in the near future! Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stay up-to-date on our announcements.
