Reporting on the front lines of history in Greece







About our work

Welcome to Borderland, a project of students in Princeton University’s global journalism seminar, “Reporting on the Frontlines in Greece.”

Each summer since 2016, students have traveled to Athens, the island of Lesbos, and other venues, notebooks and cameras in hand, to serve as eyewitnesses at a pivotal moment in world affairs. Their challenging assignment: Produce a compelling and rigorous first rough draft of history. Follow this site and #PUGreece in your social media, and join us on our journey along the border between Europe and Asia, modern and ancient, affluent and wanting, Christian and Muslim. We call it the Borderland.


This project is co-sponsored by the Council of the Humanities, which is home to the Ferris Seminars in Journalism, and by the Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies, with the support of the Paul Sarbanes ’54 Fund for Hellenism and Public Service.
