Center for Hellenic Studies, Harvard University
The Center for Hellenic Studies (under the aegis of the Trustees for Harvard University) is a research center in the United States (Washington, DC) and in Greece (Nafplion) whose mission is to promote “the humanism of the Hellenic Greeks,” in the words of its charter. To implement its mission, the Center engages in the creation of digital and print resources for teaching and scholarship and in outreach to students, teachers, and scholars through educational initiatives. Through its website, the Center offers free and open access to research and teaching in Hellenic Studies broadly conceived, including books, monographs, articles, essays, and, in the future, audio-visual materials.
It is also developing free and open digital resources and an inclusive open-source system for sharing and linking these resources in real time with related resources on the Internet such as archaeological data, lexica, images, and GIS information. The Center also sponsors educational fellowships (residential and non-residential), internships, seminars, and collaborative conferences, with the capacity to bring participants together – virtually and in person – at Harvard, at the facilities in Washington and Nafplion, and elsewhere in the United States, Europe, and beyond for scholarly and instructional purposes.
