Modern Greek Studies Association

Symposium 27 to be held at York University, Toronto, Canada on 13-16 October, 2022.

In late 2020, the MGSA Executive Board decided to postpone our 27th Symposium and reschedule it one year later. The 27th MGSA Symposium will be held in-person at York University, Toronto, Canada on 13-16 October, 2022

The Executive Board extends its congratulations to Professor Sakis Gekas, the Hellenic Studies Program & the Hellenic Heritage Foundation Chair of Modern Greek History on their deserving proposal. Together we look forward to welcoming to Canada scholars and friends from around the world in the spirit of lively intellectual exchange. We also eagerly anticipate getting to know Toronto's vibrant Greek Canadian community, its history, and its neighborhoods.

The MGSA PRIZES are traditionally awarded on the first evening of the symposium. The Executive Board has therefore also determined to push back all prize deadlines by a year. Entries for he Keeley Book Prize, the MGSA Constantinides Memorial Translation Prize, the Karagiannaki Prize for Best Edited Volume and the Iatrides Best Dissertation Prize, were submitted by 1 April, 2022 while the Papacosma Graduate Student Essay Prize deadline is 31 July 2022.
