Dear friends,

At its meeting of last Saturday, the MGSA Executive Board expressed its profound gratitude to its retiring Executive Director, S. Victor Papacosma, who served the Association in this leading position for ten years and in many other key roles for many more years.

The Board also unanimously decided to give the MGSA Graduate Student Essay Prize the new name of "Victor Papacosma Graduate Student Essay Prize," to acknowledge Victor's formative contributions and his special, lifetime dedication to mentoring graduate students (and this across multiple disciplines and geographical locations).

Last November, the Administration Committee elected Gonda Van Steen to fill the position of incoming Executive Director (starting June 1). The MGSA's email will remain the same: mgsa.org at gmail.com<mailto:mgsa.org at gmail.com>, but the new mailing address can be found at:


Modern Greek Studies Association
c/o Gonda Van Steen
P.O.Box 117435

The Board also voted in new officers to fill the newly vacated positions: Neovi Karakatsanis will serve as President and Kostis Kourelis will serve as Treasurer, until the completion of this Board's three-year term in October of 2014.

On other news: the 2015 Symposium location and dates will be announced very soon. Please refer to our website for updates.

Thank you all for your continued support,
