Sara B. Aleshire Center for the Study of Greek Epigraphy

The Sara B. Aleshire Center for the Study of Greek Epigraphy is a new campus research facility endowed by the Estate of the late Dr. Sara B. Aleshire, an alumna of AHMA and a distinguished scholar of Greek epigraphy and ancient Greek religion. The purpose of the Center is to encourage and support the research of UCB faculty and graduate students in ancient Greek inscriptions from all regions of the Mediterranean world. To that end, the Center provides funds for 1) research grants for travel to study Greek inscriptions; 2) seminars and conferences at UCB to further the study of Greek Epigraphy; and 3) book purchases related to the study of Greek Epigraphy. The Center is administered by an Advisory Committee to the Chairman of the Graduate Group in Ancient History and Mediterranean Archaeology. The chair of the Advisory Committee is Professor Nikolaos Papazarkadas. At present, the Aleshire Center’s library consists of ca. 1,300 books, 5,000 offprints, 1,000 photos, and 1,400 squeezes, which are housed on the Berkeley Campus in 6221-6223 Dwinelle Hall, and available for use by faculty, students, and visitors.
