First Drafts@Classics@ | Featured articles from 2017-18 CHS-AUTh Research Fellows

In keeping with our commitment to engendering collaboration with Greek Institutions, the CHS has developed a partnership with the Department of Classics at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. This partnership creates Joint Research Fellowships, focusing on research in the Humanities and, specifically, Ancient Greek literature and language, for young PhD holders from AUTH’s Department of Classics.

The 2017-2018 CHS-AUTh Research Fellows are Maria Chriti (Centre for the Greek Language and Open University of Cyprus), Vassilis Liotsakis (Post-doctoral Fellow at the Alexander-von-Humboldt Foundation, Ruprecht-Karls University, Heidelberg), and Androniki Oikonomaki (Laboratory Teaching Staff at the Department of Philology of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki). Their fellowship includes the pre-publication of their research at First Drafts@Classics@, a sub-section of the Classics@ online journal devoted to circulating developing scholarship. Their papers can also be downloaded in PDF format from the links below:
