HSSB 3rd floor

Research Project

I have finished my work on the Man in the Iron Mask, but am prepared to work with any student who is reasonably fluent in French or ancient Greek.   I am now working specifically on a critical translation of Cardinal Richelieu's Political Testament as well as a textual analysis of Thucydides history.

Undergraduate Contribution

A student with good computer skills to go along with linguistic ones will be doubly welcome.
