President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias on Thursday received two distinguished Greek professors teaching at Harvard University and Johns Hopkins University, stressing that “Greece is not the country of economic crisis and vulgarity. There is also a Greece of culture that should be brought forth.”
President Papoulias received Panagiotis Roilos, professor of Modern Greek Studies and Comparative Literature at Harvard University and Dimitris Yatromanolakis, who holds joint appointments in the Department of Anthropology and Humanities Center at Johns Hopkins University while he is also faculty associate at the Department of the Classics at Harvard University.
Both professors will present the Harvard University Greek Culture awards in a special ceremony in Athens.
