Pria Louka is a recent graduate of Princeton University. She earned her B.A. in Chemistry while simultaneously pursuing her passion for the modern Greek language through a minor in Hellenic Studies. Her Fulbright project focuses on the fruitful cross-pollination of the modern Greek and American theatrical traditions of the 1950s and 60s. Central to this cross-cultural exchange was George Theotokas (1906-1966) a prominent Greek intellectual and Director of the National Theater, who visited the United States in 1952 to observe American theater and form lasting connections with American artists. As a Fulbright grantee, Pria will have the opportunity to work and collaborate with leading Greek scholars to probe into this unexplored facet of modern Greek and American cultural history. She will make use of the unique archival material and special collections housed at the Institue for Mediterranean Studies and the University of Crete Library, in Rethymno, Crete.
