The project has established institutional collaborations with the Institute of Historical Research - National Hellenic Research Foundation, the Gennadios Library and the Greek General State Archives in Athens. Our project is particularly significant for our colleagues in the Greek Academia as the 200-year anniversary of the Greek Revolution was approaching. Our team has already been invited to present MapOE at the National Hellenic Research Foundation in Athens.
We also collaborate with a number of scholars in Turkey, some of whom we invited to Stanford and provided them with a free intellectual environment for their research agendas. In the US, MapOE has established collaborations with colleagues and graduate students from diverse institutions, who participated in our workshops, from UC-Davis, UC-Berkeley, Binghamton, Ohio State, Princeton, Harvard and Brandeis universities.
Our plan to extend our project’s reach is to expand our collaborative network of active project participants and to shift significant energies to transforming MapOE into an open access resource, which invites other digital projects on the Ottoman World and beyond to participate in an integrative platform.
