Sport, Society and Culture Symposium

The International Olympic Academy, in cooperation with Center for Hellenic Studies (CHS) of the Harvard University organize, since 2012, the International Symposium on “Sports, Politics and Culture” in its premises in Ancient Olympia. More than a hundred professors and students from Greek and American Universities gather in Olympia in order to get educated by a number of distinguished scholars from around the world.

Gregory Nagy and his colleagues apart from giving excellent lectures on issues related to Society, Politics, Culture and Sports, also coordinate the workshop groups into which the participants are divided in order to analyze further the topics of the lectures. The different views and new interesting opinions expressed in the symposium created the idea of the transformation of this Symposium into a complete educational program in the future.
