Modern Greek Studies Association

Princeton University to host the 2024 Symposium

Among the most important activities of the Modern Greek Studies Association is the convening of its biennial symposium. The Modern Greek Studies Association is delighted to announce that its 28th MGSA Symposium will be hosted by the Stanley J. Seeger ’52 Center for Hellenic Studies at Princeton University.  Princeton University has a long tradition of promoting Hellenic Studies and it hosted the first MGSA Symposium in 1969, as well as the 1999 MGSA Symposium. In addition, the Seeger Center is celebrating its 45th Anniversary in 2024 and is looking forward to celebrating the next phase of its history by hosting the upcoming MGSA Symposium.

The Symposium will convene on Thursday October 17, 2024 - Sunday, October 20, 2024. Local Arrangements will be directed by Faculty Director of the Seeger Center, Dimitri H. Gondicas, with the support of several faculty and scholars on campus focused on Modern Greek Studies as well as the very capable staff of the Seeger Center. In addition to multiple scholarly sessions there will be many opportunities to attend cultural activities and social gatherings throughout the symposium. With easy access from New York and Philadelphia, the Symposium will be sure to attract participants from throughout North America and around the world.  

Please mark the dates in your calendar, and plan to participate in this exciting upcoming symposium. We look forward to seeing you at Princeton!

Tom Papademetriou, President
