Now you can explore the Greek campus of the University of Michigan, one of its most interesting dimensions, by visiting http://sites.lsa.umich.edu/greekcampus/.
The University of Michigan has an old place in the history of American classicism, that is, America’s engagement with all aspects of the Greco-Roman legacy. Since its foundation in 1817, the University has been in a continuous dialogue with the Greeks, ancient and modern. Its first document, its first seal, even its first courses all had Greek names. Now you can follow this dialogue through its traces all over the U-M campus.
This brand-new site documents all the things that give Michigan its unique Greek character—buildings, objects, artworks, letters, institutions, organizations, and much more. They are all identified and explained in this fully illustrated website, which has been created by the Modern Greek Program of the Department of Classical Studies as a contribution to the University’s upcoming bicentennial celebration in 2017.
Accessible for free on any computer or mobile device to everybody at any time and place, the “Greek U-M Campus” is easy to navigate and fun to visit whether you are in Ann Arbor or far away on the other side of the planet. We invite you to explore the Greek campus of the University of Michigan and enjoy its treasures.
C. P. Cavafy Professor of Modern Greek, Departments of Classical Studies and Comparative Literature
