AFTER THE CRISIS, WHERE TO? DISCUSSING MODERN GREEK STUDIES IN THE AGE OF UNCENRTAINTY

Convenors: Professor Vrasidas Karalis & Ass/Professor Anthony Dracopoulos.

December, 6-7th, 2024
The University of Sydney

Almost six years after its last conference, the MGSAANZ invite all Australian academics, researchers, writers and cultural actors to their upcoming meeting dedicated to the diagnosis of what happened during the last six years in Australia, the future of Modern Greek studies, the teaching of Modern Greek language, the orientations of current academic research, the publishing of relevant literature and the appearance of new creative writing, together with other papers on politics, culture, art and society.

The conference wants to expand its scope and perspective to include a wide variety of research and cultural reconsiderations that take place in the Greek-Australian Diaspora but also in Global Greek studies, including visual arts, literary writing, music and cultural performance.

Furthermore, the conference will dedicate a substantial part of its discussions in presenting books published both in Greek and English by writers based in Australia, while honoring the

work and legacy of recently departed seminal literary figures, like Dimitris Tsaloumas and Antigone Kefala.

We remain open to suggestions about possible panel discussions and individual contributions.

Deadline for the submission of abstracts and proposals: August 30th, 2024

Nikolaos Gyzis, Harmony 2
