Seeger Center to host the 2024 symposium of the Modern Greek Studies Association

March 1, 2023

In October 2024, the Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies will host the 28th symposium of the Modern Greek Studies Association (MGSA). The association, which has more than 300 members, promotes scholarship about Greece, Cyprus and the Greek diaspora.

A signature event for the MGSA, the biennial symposium draws scholars from North America and around the world. The 2024 symposium will open on Thursday, October 17, and conclude on Sunday, October 20. It coincides with the 45th anniversary of the Seeger Center.

The history of the Seeger Center and the MGSA are closely intertwined. Acclaimed translator Edmund Keeley played a central role in creating both the MGSA (1968) and Princeton Hellenic Studies (1979). Princeton hosted the first MGSA symposium in 1969, and Keeley served as the organization’s first president.

“Princeton University has a long tradition of promoting Hellenic Studies,” said Tom Papademetriou, president of the MGSA, in a statement.

The MGSA plans to announce more details about the symposium soon.
