1821 – Partner Institutions

Research Project “The Greek Revolution of 1821: Digital Archive”


The 1821 Digital Archive is a large scale and collaborative research project organized and implemented by the Research Centre for the Humanities (RCH) concerning the upcoming bicentenary of the Greek War for Independence (1821). To realize the project, the RCH has signed bilateral agreements with the majority of libraries and archival institutions which house pertinent material in their collections. These agreements were signed following in situ visits by members of the Scientific Committee, who reviewed the available material and discussed priorities with the directors of each institution.

The project will be carried out with the collaboration of eminent academic and other bodies, such as:

General State Archives (GAK)

National Library of Greece

Library of the Hellenic Parliament

National Hellenic Research Foundation

Benaki Museum

Hellenic Literary and Historical Archive (ELIA)

Museum of Greek Folk Musical Instruments – The Phoebus Anoyanakis Collection

Captain Vassilis Foundation

Hellenic Foundation for Culture

Center for Modern Greece (CeMoG) of Freie Universität Berlin

National and Kapodistrian University of Athens

University of Thessaly

Athens School of Fine Arts

University of Crete

Democritus University of Thrace

Greek Art Theatre Karolos Koun

Jordan Center for the Advanced Study of Russia (NYU)


The Research Centre for the Humanities (RCH) will work alongside the bodies listed above, with the intention to broaden even more the number of collaborating bodies as the project progresses.
