Appointment of New Executive Director
I am delighted to announce the appointment of Dr. Helen Cullyer as the next Executive Director of the Society for Classical Studies. She is a classicist, with special interest in classical philosophy, educated at Oxford and Yale, where she received her doctorate in 1999. She taught at Evergreen State College and the University of Pittsburgh before moving in 2008 to the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, where she is currently Program Officer in the Scholarly Communications Program. Many members will know her work in that role, where she has been involved in working with scholars and institutions in developing many initiatives in scholarly publishing, preservation, and access to digital resources. She thus brings to the SCS a broad background in scholarship, teaching, and administration, as well as an exceptionally wide perspective on developments in digital humanities and the funding possibilities for the classics.
