Launch of CENSUS of Modern Greek Literature

The launch of The CENSUS of Modern Greek Literature: a bibliography for the English-speaking world will take place online on Tuesday 5 April 2022, at 17.00 (UK).

The CENSUS is a significant international project that facilitates access to Greek literature for speakers of English by providing references to all English-language translations of modern Greek literature and to all studies in English that relate to modern Greek literature from the twelfth century AD to the present.

The event features the presentation of the CENSUS’s “Greek Authors 19th-21st centuries” section — the first to be made available on the website under Open Access. This initial section includes references to 800 Greek literary authors (approximately 7,000 entries). This most recent phase of the project was completed, with the support of the Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation, through the collaboration of two ad hoc teams of researchers / fellowship recipients — in Boston and under the aegis of the Marilena Laskaridis Chair of Modern Greek Studies, University of Amsterdam.

At the event, Maria Boletsi, Endowed Professor, Marilena Laskaridis Chair of Modern Greek Studies, University of Amsterdam, will offer introductory remarks. The CENSUS website will be presented by Dia Philippides, Professor Emerita, Boston College (USA) and Ben Florin, Web Developer, Boston College Libraries.

The research project is directed by Dia Philippides, Professor Emerita, Boston College, in collaboration with Wim Bakker, Professor Emeritus, Department of Byzantine and Modern Greek Philology, University of Amsterdam.
