Welcome to the website of the Network for the Study of Archaic and Classical Greek Song. This network was founded in the Spring of 2007 at the initiative of Ewen Bowie (University of Oxford) and André Lardinois (Radboud University Nijmegen). It is now run by André Lardinois and Anastasia-Erasmia Peponi (Stanford University). Its main purpose is to share information and exchange ideas between scholars interested in the study of archaic and classical lyric, elegiac and iambic poetry.

The website is hosted by the Department of Classics at the Radboud University Nijmegen and is also supported by the Department of Classics at Stanford University. The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research, NWO, has kindly provided funds both for the setting up of this website and for meetings of the network in the first three years. The network is also supported by the National Research School in Classical Studies in the Netherlands, OIKOS.

For more information about the Network and its activities, see the Statement of Purpose.
