Modern Greek studies at the University of Lund (full text in Greek)

Vasileios Sabatakakis


Although ancient Greek has been a major subject at the University of Lund since its foundation, the teaching of Modern Greek began in 1957, under the influence of the increasing interest in Modern Greek literature and the needs of Swedish archaeologists working in Greece. The Department of Modern Greek Studies at the University of Lund, now independent from the Department of Ancient Greek, has constituted one of the 35 Departments of the Centre for Languages and Literature since 2006 and it provides teaching, at both undergraduate and post-graduate level, research and translation of Greek authors. Even though funding from the Swedish government guarantees the existence of Modern Greek studies at the University of Lund, the support from the Greek State and Greek Institutions is considered essential for the future of Departments of Modern Greek Studies in European Universities in general.
