University rank #33 (QS) London, United Kingdom
The Department currently has expertise in the following areas: Greek literature since the 12th century; Byzantine history; Greek history in the 19th and 20th centuries; Discourse analysis and sociolinguistics of modern Greek; Byzantium and the West; Archaeology, architecture and economic history of Byzantium and the Levant from late antiquity to the late medieval period.

Overview

Weekly departmental seminars are held in Modern Greek Studies at which students present their work in progress; though not assessed formally, these seminars require compulsory attendance. Byzantine graduates present their work in intercollegiate meetings at the Institute of Classical Studies, where they also attend a full range of seminars. In addition, the Centre for Hellenic Studies runs weekly seminars on Modern Greek and on Late Antique and Byzantine topics, and several annual lectures in the Byzantine and Modern Greek fields. 

Other Schools and institutes of the University offer a wealth of seminars in related fields, and we are committed to sharing in the wider intellectual life of the University, and of other major institutions such as the British Museum. We also co-operate closely with Greek cultural organisations based in London such as the Hellenic Foundation for Culture and the Hellenic Centre. 

Regular research seminars for students of modern Greek linguistics are held as part of the Centre for Language, Discourse & Communication (LDC). LDC conducts research in language, communication, society and education, and there are particular strengths in research on 1) the dynamics of language and literacy within globalisation and intercultural contact, and 2) language, literacy and discourse in everyday interaction, education, literature, popular culture, new and mass media, and in medical and workplace settings. Students who undertake an MPhil, PhD study in linguistics with Dr Alexandra Georgakopoulou in BMGS are automatically affiliated with the Centre. For full details visit
