The Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies at Princeton University announces our Thirteenth Annual International Graduate Student Conference in Modern Greek Studies. Due to ongoing COVID-related restrictions, the 2021 conference is being planned to take place virtually, via zoom. We invite advanced doctoral candidates to submit proposals for papers on any aspect of the early modern and/or modern Greek world, from the fifteenth century to the present. This conference aims to provide a platform for a small number of outstanding doctoral students to exchange ideas with the Princeton Hellenic Studies academic community. Also, conference participants will be offered a virtual introduction to research resources held at Princeton.
In addition to their participation at the conference, speakers will have the opportunity to virtually confer with Princeton faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students. Each selected participant will be assigned a mentor, a Hellenic Studies postdoctoral fellow, with whom to confer about their presentations, their dissertations and other research, as well as future professional opportunities.
Papers for this conference may engage with topics from any discipline in the humanities or the social sciences, including but not limited to linguistics, literature, history, philosophy, visual and material culture, the creative arts, architecture, media and film, anthropology, religion, and sociology. We are especially interested in transnational and/or comparative perspectives that highlight modern Greece’s links to wider cultural or geographical contexts, such as the Balkans, the Mediterranean, the Middle East, and diaspora communities worldwide. Comparative and/or interdisciplinary approaches are particularly encouraged. Papers at previous conferences have addressed questions of identity, migration, gender and sexuality, contemporary politics and society, international relations, media representations, religion, diaspora, reception and translation studies, cultural memory, and heritage.
