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!

A call for abstracts for a “distributed conference” scheduled to run over the fall and winter of 2021/22, seeking to gather together individuals interested in the question of royal power in the ancient world. The current call – for papers on the subject of “Power, Royal Agency, and Elite Women in the Hellenistic and Roman World” – is the first in what we hope will be an ongoing series of events exploring the meaning and manifestations of royal power.
