Columbia’s SNFPHI Explodes the Canon in Hellenic Studies

ΝΕW ΥΟRΚ — Graphic novels. Greek poetry on climate change. Shadow theater on the Asia Minor Disaster. A look into the home of a private collector.

An exciting lineup of events for the year from Columbia University’s Stavros Niarchos Foundation Public Humanities Initiative (SNFPHI) seeks to explode rather than explore the canon in Hellenic studies, widening the frame to encompass new perspectives and new pathways of engagement.

The program, entitled Exploding the Canon, launches on Friday, October 29 with Cyborg Classics, a seminar by a graphic novel author about how archeology can inform science fiction writing, which can in turn inform our understanding of the role of artificial intelligence.

SNFPHI aims create a collaborative bridge across the Atlantic, activating latent creative potential in Greece while drawing on the intellectual traditions of one of the United States’ premier research universities. The result is innovative projects that engage the public in new ways of approaching, discussing, and acting on ideas about the world around us.
