In his numerous studies (9 books and 99 scientific articles), Chris Carey deals with almost all genres of ancient Greek literature. This work reveals not only his orderliness and precision but also his creativity for reconstructing the historical past. He is particularly conscious of his effort to highlight the importance of classical literature as a common educational good and to redefine the role of classical literature in the interpretation of contemporary political and social reality.
After the ceremony there was a reception in the People's Garden with excellent dishes from the Corfu Chefs Club inspired by the ancient Greek gastronomy.
