CYA Alumna Next Editor of ASCSA’s Periodical Hesperia
After a comprehensive search, The American School of Classical Studies at Athens (ASCSA) has chosen Jennifer Sacher (CYA 99′) to be the next editor of Hesperia, the School’s quarterly periodical.
“It is an honor to serve as the next editor of Hesperia and to be entrusted to continue the standard of excellence it achieved under the direction of recent editors Tracey Cullen and Susan Lupack,” Sacher said. “I am excited to join the talented staff of the School’s Publications Office, and I look forward to working closely with scholars to present their work to the greater academic community.”
An alumna of Washington University in St. Louis, Sacher went on to earn an M.A. in Classics in 2008 from the University of Cincinnati, specializing in the study of Athenian pottery. She joined CYA in fall 1999 and participated in several seasons of fieldwork, including two in the Athenian Agora. Sacher has over a decade of experience in archaeological publishing, both as a full-time academic editor and as a freelance copy-editor and proofreader. Her unique combination of skills makes her an ideal fit for the editorship effective May 15, 2017.
Hesperia is published quarterly by the American School of Classical Studies at Athens. Since 1932 it has facilitated the wide circulation of research by members of the ASCSA, particularly the results of excavations, while, at the same time, maintaining high standards of production. The inspiration, protagonist, and father of Hesperia was Edward Capps. He conceived of the urgent need for such a periodical and promoted its establishment as part of an overall program of reform that he introduced during his two decades (1918–1939) as the chairman of the Managing Committee of the ASCSA.
Hesperia welcomes submissions from all scholars working in the fields of Greek archaeology, art, epigraphy, history, materials science, ethnography, and literature, from earliest prehistoric times onward, its geographical scope encompasses the entire Greek world. It is proud to be a fully “refereed” publication available in both print and electronic formats.
