Located in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, DC, Dumbarton Oaks
was donated to Harvard University in 1940 as gift from Mr. and Mrs. Robert
Woods Bliss. Currently, the Dumbarton Oaks Center offers a number of
fellowships in its three areas of academic inquiry, which include
Byzantine studies, pre-Columbian studies, and landscape architecture. The
organization is also well known for their numerous edited volumes, which
deal with the aforementioned research topics. Some of those volumes can be
downloaded from this site, and cover a wide array of subjects, including
pieces of Byzantine-period gardens and works on gender in pre-Hispanic
America. Divided into the center's three main research areas, the lists of
works contains a brief abstract about each volume and links to each
chapter in the work. [KMG]
