30 NOVEMBER 2017 / King’s College London Honors Supporters of the Koraes Chair of Modern Greek and Byzantine History, Language and Literature

On Wednesday, November 29th, King’s College London hosted a celebratory dinner for honoring the funders and supporters of the Koraes Chair of Modern Greek and Byzantine History, Language and Literature, to which the SNF has been a major donor.

The Koraes Chair was established in 1918. Ever since, it has become a focal point in the UK and beyond for the study of Greek history and culture from the end of antiquity to the present day. The Chair has been since 2015 part of the College’s Department of Classics, the third largest in the UK, with a long tradition of excellence in Hellenic studies, and the continuous activity of the Centre of Hellenic Studies offering research, lectures, conferences and publications.

The impact of the Chair has been its legacy of fostering a vibrant group of scholars who have gone on to distinguished careers in academia and the worlds of business, public administration and the diplomatic services in the UK, Greece, Cyprus and beyond.
