Society for Classical Studies (New York, NY 10003-7112)
Sheila Murnaghan (Project Director: May 2020 to present)
Stabilizing Research and Publications Activities During COVID-19 and Ensuring Momentum for the Future

The retention of one full-time and one part-time position and the extension of one full-time research fellow to support the activities of the Research and Publications Division of the Society for Classical Studies, including publication of the journal Transactions of the American Philological Association.

The Society for Classical Studies is the oldest and largest member and professional organization in the US devoted to the study and teaching of the ancient Greek and Roman and broader ancient Mediterranean worlds. The Society has recently completed strategic planning and developed three strategic priorities of advocacy, growth, and inclusion and is making headway in ensuring that the field of Classics becomes: (a) a more inclusive intellectual environment for research and teaching; and (b) more heavily involved in public engagement. However, this progress is threatened by the economic impact that COVID-19 is having on all revenue sources for the Society. This project would serve to maintain key activities such as journal production, bibliographic editing, website development, and provide bridge funding for a research fellow, while the organization continues to implement its strategic goals.
