Bard Graduate Center is an international community of scholars and students from a variety of academic backgrounds united by their object-centered approaches to understanding the past. From the archaeology of ancient Greece to oral histories of contemporary craftspeople, BGC is home to a wide range of interdisciplinary historical inquiry.
