Journal of Modern Greek Studies

The Journal of Modern Greek Studies is a semiannual journal, sponsored by the MGSA and published by Johns Hopkins University Press, which features essays, written in English, by leading scholars in the field of Modern Greek Studies from North America and around the world. Focusing on a broad historical expanse that stretches from late Byzantium until the present, the JMGS is highly interdisciplinary, publishing peer-reviewed articles from scholars who represent a diversity of fields within the humanities, the arts, and the social sciences. A JMGS subscription is complimentary with MGSA membership.

We have a page on the JMGS which hosts current and past issues and two extra features: "In Focus" contains supplementary material that accompany the printed issue, that include podcasts, photographs, music, videos, and poetry readings. "Occasional Papers" hosts interviews, position papers, reports on collaborative projects and other material on current matters relating to Greece, Cyprus, Greek and Greeks worldwide selected by the editors. The latest "Occasional Paper" may be accessed without a password here ‣

The Editorial Board of the journal, which is selected and appointed by the Executive Board of MGSA, is composed of senior scholars in the field of Modern Greek Studies. In selecting the Editorial Board, the Executive Board strives to maintain a balance between scholars in the Arts and Humanities, on the one hand, and the Social and Behavioral Sciences, on the other. The main task of the members of the Editorial Board is to provide advice to the Editor about appropriate individuals to review/referee submissions to the journal. They are also occasionally asked to review manuscripts themselves.

The editors and editorial board for the years through 2024 are as follows:
Editor · Michael Herzfeld · Harvard University  

Vol. 40, No.2, October 2022
