Welcome to the Waterloo Institute for Hellenistic Studies
The Waterloo Institute for Hellenistic Studies supports scholarship, research, outreach programs and pedagogical activities that deal with all facets of the Hellenistic world. We are particularly interested in collaborative and interdisciplinary work among international scholars, as well as helping young scholars and graduate students as they pursue their own interests in this diverse field. If you are interested at all in learning more about possible opportunities associated with the Institute or just discovering something new and dynamic about this fascinating time in Western history, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you!

The Waterloo Institute for Hellenistic Studies and the Parochial Polis Research Network at McGill University will jointly host a conference on “Localism in the Hellenistic World” in April 2018. The Hellenistic period is generally seen as a time of expanded horizons and shifting frontiers, with a diffusion of Greek culture throughout the Mediterranean and the Near East unprecedented in any previous era.
