Modern Greek Studies Association


The 28th MGSA Symposium will be hosted by the Stanley J. Seeger ’52 Center for Hellenic Studies at Princeton University. October 17 – 20, 2024  ▹ ▹

Every two years, the MGSA organizes an international symposium, hosted at various North American locations, which attracts hundreds of scholars from all over the world. While early symposia had a designated theme, today they are open to all disciplines and topics in order to better represent the growth and diversity of Modern Greek Studies since the late 1960s. Indeed, the human and social sciences, the arts and professional schools are all well represented in the proceedings. In addition, symposia are often enriched with exhibits, concerts, readings, and other cultural offerings.

The MGSA symposium, the oldest and largest of its kind in the world, provides a unique forum for current research and new ideas. Over the years it has started welcoming graduate students, often giving them their first exposure to the field as well as to disciplines outside their own. Many symposium papers eventually appear in the Journal of Modern Greek Studies , either individually or as entire panels.

The following list, which includes the complete programs of all symposia in chronological order, serves as a record not only of the biennial event but also of the breadth of the field on a global scale.
