Columbia Announces Summer Grants in Public Humanities for Students
02 July 2020

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Public Humanities Initiative (SNFPHI) has announced the recipients of its summer grants in public humanities.

The six grantees—three undergraduates and three graduate students at Columbia University—will be conducting independent projects related to Hellenic studies or collaborating in ongoing SNFPHI projects in Greece.

Grantees will design a board game related to the Greek revolution, facilitate an oral history project for high school students related to refugee crises, hold zine workshops, reimagine Andromache in quarantine, create installation art inspired by weaving and folk tale traditions, and reexamining job interview questions in the COVID era through the lens of Aristotle’s Poetics. Several of the grantees will be working remotely with the seven SNFPHI projects currently underway in Greece.

Established in 2019, SNFPHI is exclusively supported by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF). It is a project of Columbia University’s Department of Classics and Institute for Ideas and Imagination, which was inaugurated in fall 2017 with lead support from SNF.
