At its last meeting, 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. Books, translations, edited volumes, dissertations and graduate student essays should now be submitted by the following deadlines:
The Keeley Book Prize, the MGSA Constantinides Memorial Translation Prize, the Karagiannaki Prize for Best Edited Volume and the Iatrides Best Dissertation Prize, all 1 April, 2022 while the Papacosma Graduate Student Essay Prize deadline is 31 July 2022.
The archive of the MGSA’s 26th biennial Symposium at the California State University, Sacramento is here.
The Modern Greek Studies Association (MGSA) mourns the death of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tamir Rice and countless others who have lost their lives due to police violence. We condemn racialized terror and the oppression of Black people and stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and other social movements that are working to address the pernicious effects of systemic racism on society. We urge our scholarly community to listen to and learn from those who experience racism. Academic organizations such as ours that bring together scholars and practitioners from a range of disciplines and backgrounds must contribute to the cultivation of the critical dialogues that are essential to addressing these entrenched injustices and the development of lasting and equitable solutions. To that end, we encourage Modern Greek Programs to incorporate anti-racist pedagogies and activities that contribute to raising consciousness about the experiences of those whose lives are negatively impacted by racism.
