The Cambridge Centre for Greek Studies

The Cambridge Centre for Greek Studies (CCGS) is a virtual Centre for researchers interested in the study of Greek culture from a synchronic and a diachronic perspective. The Centre supports and enhances the study of the Modern, Medieval and Classical Greek worlds from every possible angle: linguistic, historical, literary, artistic, architectural, philosophical and anthropological. Building on Cambridge’s historic strengths in modern Greek language and literature (in the Faculty of Modern and Mediaeval Languages) and ancient Greek culture as a whole (in the Faculty of Classics), and on the University’s deep-rooted commitment to Classical Reception, it aims to create a hub for the very best teaching and research in Greek across time and space.
