Keith DeStone, Harvard Study Leader

Keith DeStone is a 2013 graduate of Harvard University’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, a current Research Associate at Harvard’s Center for Hellenic Studies in Washington DC, and a member of the Board of Directors of Harvard’s Center for Hellenic Studies in Greece (the Harvard Alumni Association’s institutional partner in offering this trip). In his work with the CHS, Dr. DeStone manages online learning environments, both self-directed and community-based, and online publications.

Keith earned his PhD in Hebrew Bible from Harvard’s Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations department, where his research focused on the book of Deuteronomy, in particular the multifaceted centrality of the Song of Moses to this biblical book. A current project involves tracing the development of early editions of the Bible in Greece.

At home, Keith enjoys growing wildflowers and creating a habitat that is hospitable to native bees. For the HAA and CHS May 2022 travel program, he is especially excited about returning to Nafplio, where the headquarters of Harvard’s international Center in Greece are located.
