The 25th biennial Symposium of the Modern Greek Studies Association will take place November 2-5, 2017, in Galloway (near Atlantic City), New Jersey. The Symposium will be hosted by the Pappas Center for Hellenic Studies at Stockton University. Professors David Roessel and Tom Papademetriou, Director of the Center, will be co-chairing the Local Arrangements Committee.

The Symposium keynote address, entitled “Globalization and the return to the national: Perspectives on Greece’s ongoing crisis,” will be delivered by Anna Triandafyllidou. Dr. Triandafyllidou is Professor at the Global Governance Programme (GGP) of the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies (RSCAS), European University Institute. From 2004 through 2012, Professor Triandafyllidou was a Senior Fellow at the Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy (ELIAMEP) in Athens, where she headed a successful migration research team. She is also the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Immigrant and Refugee Studies.
