A Request from the Editors

The recent (or latest) Crisis in Greece (and beyond) has resulted in a wealth of scholarly production that addresses all aspects of this crisis--economic, social, political, intellectual. Although the Journal has a database of manuscript reviewers, we are finding ourselves in need of a broadened pool of potential reviewers especially for the following topics:

  • Current political parties and electoral structures
  • Migration--both immigration and emigration
  • Contextualization of the financial dimensions of the crisis
  • Labor (history of labor movement, flexible labor, trade unions, migrant labor)
  • The rise of Chrysi Avgi
  • Privatization of public lands
  • The Greek Church and church history

If you would like to be considered as a reviewer please email the editors indicating your willingness to do so. *Please note that only published authors (in peer reviewed journals and/or presses) can act as reviewers, regardless of seniority or official position and title.
