Project title
Indexing for Review and Preview of the Spread of Modern Greek Literature in English

What is the most significant finding of your research?
We are creating (and indexing) an online machine-readable database of all translations and essays in English about Modern Greek literature since AD 1200. With this database, scholars and translators will be able to track trends and patterns of the spread of Modern Greek literature.

What was the biggest challenge you faced in conducting your research?
Because our project relies on evolving technologies, we have continually had to seek expertise from faculty, librarians, and technical experts.

What did you learn about the research process from doing this project?
The importance of conducting research with a clear vision of how the final product will most probably be used.

What do you hope to do after graduating? 
I would love to continue my studies in philosophy, literature, languages, and digital humanities, culminating in a career in either academia or law.
