Symposium 26 and MGSA Prizes

The MGSA’s 26th biennial Symposium will be held at the California State University, Sacramento, on November 7-10, 2019 (Th.pm through Su.am).  Katerina Lagos, Professor of History and Director of the CSUS Hellenic Studies Program, will host the event and chair the Local Arrangements Committee.  Late January 2019 was the deadline for electronic submissions of abstracts, panel proposals, and proposals for special sessions.  The Program Committee sent out notifications of acceptances and rejections March 28, 2019.  A preliminary program will be posted by late summer 2019. 

On the Thursday opening night of the Symposium, the MGSA announces the winners of its various prize competitions (for books, dissertations, edited volumes, translations, and graduate student essays).  All prizes had an April 1, 2019 submission deadline, except for the graduate student essay prize, which has a July 31, 2019 deadline. 

The closest airport to the 2019 Symposium location is Sacramento International Airport (SMF).  San Francisco Airport is some 100 miles away.  For more information and regular updates, MGSA Symposium.orgis dedicated to the fall 2019 Symposium.  Please save the dates of November 7-10, 2019. 📆  Monday the 11th is a holiday, which may facilitate travel.  Join us for another symposium of the highest academic standards.​
