Waterloo Institute for Hellenistic Studies and Hellenic Heritage Foundation launch annual lecture series

Wednesday, September 4, 2019

The Waterloo Institute for Hellenistic Studies, in association with the Hellenic Heritage Foundation, is pleased to announce a new lecture series, which will annually feature a distinguished international Greek scholar. The HHF-WIHS Hellenic Discoveries Lecture Series will deepen knowledge and foster pride and understanding about the importance of Greece and the role its leaders and peoples have played around the world. The goal of the series is to help ensure that future generations of Greeks, scholars, researchers, and the broader population will be inspired and intrigued by Greek language, culture, and history, as told through the lens of the Hellenistic period.

We are also pleased to announce that the first lecturer in this series will be Professor Kostas Bouraselis from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. Prof. Bouraselis is a noted scholar on Hellenistic history.  The talk is titled, "Thoughts on the Battle of Marathon as a landmark in Greek and Universal History and its current state" and will be held at the Royal Ontario Museum on October 15.

The event is free and all are welcome but registration is recommended.
