A series of humanities workshops for recent American military veterans at Yale University, Harvard University, and the University of Michigan.

The Warrior-Scholar Project (WSP) is an intensive, two-week-long, humanities-based "academic boot camp" hosted at America's top universities to facilitate veterans' transition from the military to college. In these two weeks, under the guidance of both student-veterans who've successfully transitioned from the military to college, and world renowned professors, students on the Warrior-Scholar Project develop the analytical reading, writing, and discussion skills critical to academic success, while also learning about what challenges to expect during this transition. Through WSP, not only do we teach veterans the substantive skills they wil need to succeed in college, we aim to completely transform the way they view themselves as students. During the program, our student veterans tackle humanities classics such as Alexis de Tocqueville's Democracy in America, Thucydides' The Peloponnesian War, and Herodotus' The History, as well as more modern works such as Fareed Zakaria's "The Democratic Age," Robert Dahl's How Democratic is the American Constitution?, and Francis Fukuyama's "The Future of History." By engaging with these intellectual giants, the Warrior-Scholars develop confidence and learn critical thinking skills essential to collegiate success, while sparking their excitement about the awesome possibility of academic study.

The development of an undergraduate course on the meaning of life, focusing on writings from ancient Greece and Rome.

This project aims to develop a course exploring nine different versions of how to live a life worth living by reading several works of ancient literature, history, and philosophy. By studying Homer, Sappho, Thucydides, Plato, Aristotle, Epicurus, Marcus Aurelius, and Augustine, students will learn how to think analytically about the fundamental question of the meaning of life by joining the western tradition's argument about the nature of the meaning of life.

The development of an undergraduate seminar on the question, What form of government is best suited to human society?

Assistant Professor Robert Saldin develops a first- and second- year seminar that is sponsored by the university's political science department and honors college. The seminar addresses how governmental structures are attuned to social arrangements and how these structures influence "a society's way of life." The first part of the course considers theories about governmental forms, with examples from classical antiquity. "An essential purpose of this first portion . . . will be to encourage students to take a step back from our own familiar life within a liberal democracy" and consider other possible forms of government organization in different times and places. Tentative readings for this section include selections from Aristotle's Politics, Plato's Republic, and Thucydides' History of the Peloponnesian War. Aristophanes' The Clouds, Shakespeare's Coriolanus, and Plutarch's "Life of Lycurgus" are read in full. The second part of the course examines "three government forms-theocracy, liberal democracy, and socialism-that are contemporary, and controversial" to provide specific case studies to illuminate the central question. Readings on theocracy include John Winthrop, "A Model of Christian Charity"; Ayatollah Khomeini, "Messages to Pilgrims"; Thomas Jefferson, "Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom"; and Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Scarlet Letter. Readings for liberal democracy encompass Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America; Harriet Beecher Stowe, Uncle Tom's Cabin; and Kurt Vonnegut, "Harrison Bergeron." Socialism is studied through Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, The Communist Manifesto; Vladimir Lenin, The State and Revolution; and Arthur Koestler, Darkness at Noon. The course is offered twice, in Fall 2013 and Fall 2014; each iteration includes two outside guest lectures open to the university community with live streaming video; the lecturers also meet privately with the class to discuss their presentations. Professor Saldin notes that his scholarly training focuses on "American politics and public policy." The grant allows him to expand his expertise into other periods and cultures through close study of works listed in the scholarly bibliography included in the application.

The development of a community college course on the circumstances under which war may be justified and whether it can be conducted ethically once begun.

The development of a community college course on the circumstances under which war may be justified and whether it can be conducted ethically once begun. Elliott Meyrowitz, a Vietnam combat veteran with a J.D. degree and a Ph.D. in history, develops a course for community college students on the question, What is a just war? Meyrowitz argues that the position that "all war should be condemned" is untenable; as a result, "from the time of the Roman Empire and early Christianity philosophers and theologians began to develop the concept of a 'just war.'" Given contemporary problems of war and conflict, the enhancement of "students' ability to distinguish between justifiable and unjustifiable use of armed force" is pressing. The course is organized into four units: 1) just war theories over time and in the western and eastern traditions, as exemplified by important writers; 2) how these thinkers as well as military strategists have developed alternatives to just war theory; 3) case studies of World Wars I and II, Vietnam, and recent American actions in the Middle East and Afghanistan; 4) application of just war theory to a range of circumstances such as total war, nuclear war, guerrilla war, genocide, ethnic cleansing, civil war, asymmetric war, and terrorism. The core readings for the course include writings by Thucydides, Cicero, Augustine, Aquinas, Machiavelli, Hobbes, and Kant and recent scholars and theorists including Michael Walzer, John Keegan, James Turner Johnson, Jean Bethke Elshtain, Christopher Paul, and David Fisher.

The development of an upper-level undergraduate seminar on ideas about how to attain and secure peace, open to cadets and civilian students at a military college.

The development of an upper-level undergraduate seminar on ideas about how to attain and secure peace, open to cadets and civilian students at a military college. Four faculty members develop an upper-level seminar open to all students on the enduring question, What is peace? In addition to the question of what constitutes peace, the subject involves the additional consideration of whether peace should be established and maintained whatever the cost, or if it should be constrained by attempts to achieve justice. In order to address these questions, the course considers classic authors and works from western and eastern traditions, including Thucydides, Aristophanes, Sun Tzu, the Song of Roland, Christine de Pizan, Erasmus, Shakespeare, the Abbe St. Pierre, Rousseau, Kant, Clausewitz, Gandhi, Mao Zedong, and Kurt Vonnegut, plus modern scholars and theorists including Hannah Arendt, Michael Howard, and Michael Doyle. The participating faculty members include Renee Bricker (early modern history), Donna Gessell (English), Michael Proulx (ancient history), and Yi Deng (philosophy); course preparation allows each to expand his or her academic perspectives. The course itself meets once a week for two and a half hours in seminar format; it also takes advantage of electronic media to post weekly student "talking-papers" and facilitate intellectual interchange outside the classroom. The students are also expected to present papers at the college's undergraduate research conference and revise them for an undergraduate journal.

Who is responsible in a democratic regime: the leader who persuades a people to action or the people who allow themselves to be persuaded? the elected officials or those who elected them? To address this question, I turn to works primarily from ancient Athens: Thucydides' History, a selection of the tragedies and comedies, as well as to Shakespeare's Henry V and The Federalist. In each case, I see a different story of how to assign agency and assess responsibility. The challenge of how to understanding responsibility when discussing fluid composite political bodies engages us in questions of justice with and between nations, and contributes to our understanding of democracy in the modern age. The study of the ancient texts will be set in contrast to work done on prospective and retrospective voting by contemporary students of elections and representation in order to grasp more fully the conceptual and moral changes that have taken place with the move to modern forms of democracy.

THE BATTLE OF MARATHON IN HISTORY AND MEMORY will take my interpretation of Archaic Greek warfare to a general audience. In the course of telling an exciting story about the famous battle in 490 BCE, I will show how Greeks changed from fighting in fluid and disorganized ways to fighting in the exclusive hoplite phalanx familiar from Thucydides and Xenophon. This project will build on my earlier articles as well as on research conducted by others studying Archaic poetry, armor, and vase paintings. It will draw on interviews with historical reenactors as well as on tests in the Molnar Human Performance Laboratory at Furman University. The book will be published by Yale University Press in its "Yale Library of Military History" series.

I seek support for a book-length study of the political thought of Homer, focusing on his teaching concerning such central themes of political philosophy as the conflict between justice and self-interest; the relation between rationalism and virtue; and the relative merits of the political life and the theoretical life. While Homer has always been regarded as a poet of the first rank, it is forgotten today that such political philosophers as Thucydides, Plato, and Machiavelli considered him to be a foundational political and moral thinker as well. The most prominent traditional scholars of Homer offer illuminating insights concerning political and moral themes in the epic poems, but nevertheless treat those insights as flashes of poetic inspiration or as inherited cultural values rather than as the cohesive political and moral teachings of a theoretical mind. The goal of my work is to restore Homer to his rightful place among the principal figures in the history of political thought.

Research and writing leading to a book on the ancient Greek historian Thucydides (c.460 BC - c.400 BC) and his understanding of Athenian democracy. 

This book project offers a fundamental reinterpretation of Thucydides’ analysis of Athenian democracy. Drawing upon literary, epigraphic, and visual evidence to contextualize Thucydides’ account, I show that he advanced an understanding of dêmokratia that was substantively different from later definitions of “democracy.” Paradoxical though it seems, he impressed upon his reader the need to analyze Athenian democracy as a form of autocratic rule, not as an inherently egalitarian regime. In doing so, I show, Thucydides reinvented the traditional ideology of heroic kingship, utilizing explanatory tools from Greek science to produce an account of a heroic democracy that was at once proto-social scientific and indebted to tragic myth. Recognition of this project redefines our understanding of Thucydidean thought and suggests an understanding of “democracy” that challenges present orthodoxy in both democratic theory and intellectual history.

With his 1753 translation of Thucydides' History of the Peloponnesian War, William Smith brought the Athenian empire and experience into the contemporary debate over the British maritime empire, policy of naval defense, and need for the leadership of patriots. Smith favored a strong British naval defense but not an expansionist empire, and he offered Thucydides' History to the British as a cautionary tale. This article addresses Smith's understanding and use of Thucydides' history and argument, and locates Smith's work in the political, intellectual, and visual culture of eighteenth-century Britain. The article demonstrates how, in the eighteenth century, ancient Greece, no less than ancient Rome, played a formative part in British self-reflection and political analysis, and with this it expands the interpretive field for classicists, historians, those interested in the history and reception of classical texts, art historians, and historians of political thought.

An expansion of the widely-used Perseus Digital Library to integrate reading tools that are designed to facilitate the study of ancient texts and the ability to conduct searches for relevant words and phrases.

Our goal in this Level III project is to promote a fundamental change in how human beings view translations and the cultures of which their original source text is a product. To support this larger goal we integrate into the emerging new version of Perseus new reading tools that we have developed as separate applications over the past decade: (1) the ability to produce, automatically and manually, word and phrase level alignments between source texts and translations and to see these alignments while reading; (2) the ability to view the full morphological and syntactic analysis of each word in a text; (3) new forms of searching and browsing based on this new data (e.g., find all English words used to translate a word or to view all subject/verb, adjective/noun combinations); (4) both large scale work (alignment of 50 million words of English to Greek and Latin) as well as focused projects (e.g., a bilingual edition of Homer).
