Department of Medieval and Modern Greek Studies

The Department is an active participant in the European Program for Higher Education and Academic Mobility Erasmus. We have bi-lateral agreements with the following institutions: Universite de Paris-Sorbonne, University of London, University of Birmingham, University of Munich, University of Vienna. An essential part of our program is our regular Graduate Colloquium including seminars by foreign and Greek scholars, members of the faculty, and recent Ph.D. holders or candidates.

These meetings attract a great number of Greek and foreing scholars and the proceedings are published on a regular basis.
