Founded in 2016 by the Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies, the Princeton Athens Center for Research and Hellenic Studies provides an array of innovative educational opportunities for Princeton scholars to pursue onsite research and teaching in Greece. 

The Center’s location — in the Pangrati neighborhood of Athens — allows students and faculty to take advantage of nearby libraries, research centers, museums, archaeological sites and the vibrant urban environment of the city. 

The Center features conference facilities, a seminar room, offices, study spaces, informal common room areas and a terrace, creating an ideal environment for Princeton scholars to engage in lively academic discussions with their Greek counterparts. 

Due to the Center’s research profile and the limited space available, events held at the Center are by invitation only. 

In its initial two years of operation, the Princeton Athens Center has sponsored a rich series of academic activities, including:

  • Translation Workshops
  • INCH Retreats
  • Greek Experience Under Ottoman Rule
  • Symposium Aristotelicum
  • Liquid Antiquity Workshop
  • PIIRS Global Seminars
