The 25th biennial Symposium of the Modern Greek Studies Association will take place November 2-5, 2017, in Galloway (near Atlantic City), New Jersey. The Symposium will be hosted by the Pappas Center for Hellenic Studies at Stockton University. Professors David Roessel and Tom Papademetriou, Director of the Center, will be co-chairing the Local Arrangements Committee.
The venue will be the historic Stockton Seaview Hotel, a luxury resort owned by Stockton University, where the Local Arrangements Committee has held rooms at the very affordable rate of $109 per night (excluding tax, single and double occupancy at the same rate). It is readily accessible from major airports in Philadelphia and the New York City area. More details will be forthcoming.
