In September 2016, the Modern Greek Studies program at Brown received generous support from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation USA, for a five year position in Modern Greek literature in the department of Comparative Literature, co- funded by the office of the Dean of the Faculty.
Professor Stelios Michalopoulos (Eastmann Professor of Political Economy, Brown University) presents findings from two ongoing projects regarding the economic, political, and artistic impact of refugees from Anatolia in Greece over the last century. The local and aggregate impacts of refugee resettlement on human capital (schooling) and structural transformation in about 11,000 settlements in Greece will be discussed alongside the refugees’ artistic expression, as reflected in the songs by artists of refugee origin.

Starr Foundation Lectureships Fund, cordially invites you to join us for "The Archeologist": Panel Discussion featuring Prof. Johanna Hanink .
