Niki Marangou PhD Dissertation Prize

The Society proudly announces the establishment of the

Niki Marangou PhD Dissertation Prize


The Prize will be awarded  by the Society annually, commencing in 2021, to an outstanding doctoral dissertation in any field relating to the study of Modern Greece and its history, culture and people. 

The Society is grateful to the sponsor for their support of its aims and activities. Supporting and encouraging the students has been a long standing commitment of the Society through its Graduate Research Colloquium. We envisage that this Prize will further contribute to the showcasing and rewarding of the fantastic research that students complete in the UK in the field of Modern Greek Studies.

The value of the prize is £500.00. The prize is open to PhD students currently or recently enrolled in any UK University who are or become members of the Society for 2020-21. They must submit their dissertation in English in pdf format (only) for consideration by a committee in advance of the deadline of 31 December 2020. Dissertations must be defended and formally submitted within the years 2019 or 2020 and cannot be older. The students’ supervisors will not be asked to serve on the Dissertation Prize Committee, which will be composed of faculty members who cover the specialties represented in the submissions. Therefore, candidates should also submit a cover letter (in pdf) listing the names of their dissertation committee members and asking their primary supervisors to co-sign it. All submissions must be sent to the Secretary,
