New Senior Fellow for 2014-19

Papazarkadas_new_fellowThe CHS is pleased to announce the appointment of a new Senior Fellow: Nikolaos Papazarkadas, Associate Professor of Classics at the University of California, Berkeley, and Chair of the Aleshire Center for the Study of Greek Epigraphy. He will begin his five-year appointment in the fall following the conclusion of Angelos Chaniotis’s term as a senior fellow. As leading scholars in major subdisciplines of the study of Ancient Greece, the senior fellows form the committee that selects CHS Fellows in Hellenic Studies. The current senior fellows also include Luca Giuliani (Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin), Richard Martin (Stanford University), Mark Schiefsky (Harvard University), and Laura M. Slatkin (New York University/University of Chicago). Anthony Snodgrass and Douglas Frame serve as advisors to the committee.
Professor Papazarkadas specializes in Greek history and epigraphy and has published extensively on inscriptions from Athens, Boeotia, and the Cyclades. He is currently one of the four senior editors of the Supplementum Epigraphicum Graecum. His monograph Sacred and Public Land in Ancient Athens was published in 2011 by Oxford University Press. Besides, he has co-edited the volumes Interpreting the Athenian Empire (with J. Ma and R. Parker, London: Duckworth 2009); ATTIKA EPIGRAPHIKA: Studies in Honor of Christian Habicht (with A. A. Themos, Athens: Greek Epigraphic Society 2009), and Epigraphical Approaches to the Post-Classical Polis: 4th Century B.C. — 2nd Century A.D. (with P. Martzavou, Oxford: Oxford University Press 2013). More recently, he published the proceedings of the 2011 Berkeley International Epigraphy Symposium The Epigraphy and History of Boeotia: New Finds, New Prospects (Leiden & Boston: Brill 2014).
