The NEH Fellowship program at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens promotes and facilitates the study of the humanities in the United States by providing opportunities for American-based, post-doctoral scholars to pursue research projects in humanistic disciplines relating to Greece. Access to world-class libraries, archaeological sites, museums, storerooms, excavation records, and archival collections along with the creative and intellectual energy that results from engagement in a dynamic academic community, makes the American School an ideal place for conducting such research. The publication and presentation of this research in scholarly venues, public lectures, on-line platforms, and classrooms at all levels back in the United States add new ideas and approaches to the body of knowledge that emanates from, responds to, and offers historiographic critique of Greek ideas that inform the humanistic disciplines.

Archaeological fieldwork and analysis at the Sanctuary of the Great Gods on the island of Samothrace (Greece); 3D modeling of the site; a scholarly symposium; and preparation of a co-authored book. (36 months)

The Victory, Nike, of Samothrace in the Louvre has long captured the imagination of the world, but it becomes all the more powerful when reunited with its spatial, material, historical, religious and aesthetic environment in the ancient Greek Sanctuary of the Great Gods on Samothrace. From the Nike's vantage over the performative heart of the Sanctuary, Theater, Stoa, and Altar Court, we reframe the archaeological investigation of this Hellenistic international religious center, grounding our exploration in the rich material record of the region, the dynamic environmental factors underlying it, and the human actions through which it was determined and experienced. Drawing on approaches to space, memory, and identity to investigate cultural interaction and community creation in this evocative place, whose rites were open to all and whose promises were famously valued, our work aims to provide a basis for engaging spatial and experimental issues at stake in understanding sacred places.
