From May 28 to June 2, 2024, the Maliotis Cultural Center (MCC) has welcomed, and is hosting the 10th International Summer University on its US premises.

Panhellenic educators, students, and graduate researchers will participate in an intensive and in-depth study of various topics that pertain to the teaching of the Greek language, particular educational methodology in diaspora schools, the use of new technological teaching aids, the usefulness of mass media, and many more.

This year’s edition is being held under the auspices of the General Secretariat for Greeks Abroad, and Public Diplomacy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs with the theme – “Greek Language, Culture, and Mass Media”: Spreading and Teaching the Greek Language in the Greek Diaspora in the U.S.A.”

Participants will also explore topics including “Addressing Educators’ Language Mistakes”, “Engaging Second- and Third-Generation Greek Students”, and “Promoting partnerships between Greek schools in the United States and Greek universities.”

The Maliotis Cultural Center aims to connect academic communities in Greece with colleagues and Philhellenes in the American diaspora. It believes that equipping Greek-language educators with tools and resources to improve Greek language-teaching in the diaspora is essential to its mission of promoting Hellenic culture and language.
