GIAS Announces New NEH Grant for Mediterranean Studies

August 15, 2023

UC Berkeley History professor Christine Philliou has been awarded a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) for a 3-year research project to create a comprehensive, public-facing website to build new types of knowledge and raise public awareness about Istanbul and its constituent Orthodox Christian communities in the 19th and 20th centuries. The project, titled "Visualizing Local Christian Communities in Muslim Cosmopolitan Istanbul in the 19th and 20th Centuries” will be hosted at Berkeley's Global, International and Area Studies with the goal of writing these communities that have been marginalized by nationalism back into the historical record of Europe and the Middle East.
