January 18th 2018 annoucement:
Congratulations to Argyro Nicolaou for winning a 2017–2018 Bowdoin Graduate Prize in the English Language for her essay entitled “’Now that the World has become an Endless Hotel’: European Narratives of Displacement in the Middle East during the Second World War.”
December 13th 2017 announcement:
Comparative Literature graduate student Argyro Nicolaou has been selected as one of eight Harvard Horizon Scholars for 2018. Each year, eight PhD candidates from the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences are chosen to participate in the Harvard Horizons program, which culminates in a symposium of brief, compelling talks where these scholars present their research from the Sanders Theatre stage. This year's symposium will take place on April 11th at 4.30pm.
May 2018 Edit: You can watch the video of her performance at Sanders Theater here.
Argyro is also one the recipients of the two Mahindra Humanities Interdisciplinary Dissertation Completion Fellowships this year. This annual fellowship, open to Harvard graduate students and offered by the Mahindra Humanities Center, is intended to support work that crosses disciplinary (and even divisional) boundaries.
Our heartiest congratulations to Argyro for her excellent work!
