About the Painting
The Dean C. and Zoë S. Pappas Center for Hellenic Studies, originally established by the American Foundation for Greek Language and Culture (AFGLC) as the Interdisciplinary Center for Hellenic Studies, is housed in the School of Arts and Humanities.
With six endowed professorships, the Center’s focus includes the disciplines of Greek language and literature, history and culture, classical archaeology, art history, philosophy, politics, anthropology and Byzantine civilization and religion. Scholarly and artistic activities emphasize the diachronic range of Hellenism, and promote student enrichment through travel and university exchanges in Greece and Cyprus.
