The Athens Dialogues e-journal was established under the scientific supervision of the Center for Hellenic Studies of Harvard University (CHS), with the purpose of hosting the essays presented during the Conference that marked the beginning of the Onassis Foundation’s Cultural Centre activities, in November 2010. The Center for Hellenic Studies’ Research team that specializes in the use of digital technology in the area of Humanities, took on the challenge of the Dialogues e-journal so as to experiment with new means and techniques in text enrichment.
Worth mentioning is the fact that the content of each scientific essay is considered a “performance”, thus deciding that the essays would be accompanied by videos of the speakers’ presentations. Furthermore, the essays are continuously being enriched, albeit on an experimental level, with information that turns presentations into a multi-use interactive tool, such as essays that have been electronically linked with relevant historical and contemporary maps.
Following the completion of the original Athens Dialogues and upon entering their new phase, the e-journal’s structure and operation have been enhanced – in addition to its existing publishing directors, Professors Gregory Nagy and Georgios Babiniotis – with the establishment of a publishing committee and an international scientific council. This way the e-journal opens itself to young collaborators from all over the world and disseminates scientific and interdisciplinary dialogue on issues that relate to Greek Culture and have an impact on people today.
