The Kimon Friar Lectureship was established at The American College of Greece in honor of the poet, anthologist and first major translator of Modern Greek poetry who made Modern Greek Literature known abroad and opened up new prospects for its study outside Greece. Kimon Friar bequeathed part of his personal library and manuscripts to the College.

This year, the Kimon Friar Lecture is being organized in collaboration with the Fulbright Foundation in Greece as part of Fulbright’s 70 years of educational and cultural exchanges between Greece and the United States. The Lecture will be delivered by Carol Becker, Professor of the Arts and Dean of Columbia University School of the Arts.
