Academic departments in the humanities have been dwindling in the past decades worldwide, as part of a wider shift of interest from the arts and humanities to the sciences. This shift is more practically oriented, but can endanger knowledge of cultural diversity, language, and tradition both for individuals and societies.

To preserve access to higher education about Modern Greece abroad, with Mr. Evangelos Marinakis as lead sponsor, Ohio Hellenic Paideia ('OHP', Columbus Ohio, USA) initiated and completed a new round of fundraising between 2015-2020, in order to safeguard the continuing operation of the Modern Greek Studies Program at The Ohio State University (Columbus Ohio, USA).

The chair of the program has been named after Mr. Marinakis' late father, Miltiadis Marinakis, a well-respected philanthropist, who instilled in Mr. Marinakis a sense of duty toward his fellow man and pride in his Greek heritage.

The "Miltiadis Marinakis Endowed Professorship for Modern Greek Language and Culture" was established by The Board of Trustees of The Ohio State University ('OSU') on the 25th of March, 2020.

This webinar will highlight modern Greek language and culture, in the wider context of the Greek-American experience, preserving tradition throughout history, while absorbing and reshaping enriching influences, and evolving with global popular culture.




The webinar will consist of a 90-minute expert discussion, which will be followed by a live Q&A session lasting for 15 minutes. This webinar will be archived and available for replay on demand upon registration.
