MEDIA related to the CENSUS OF MODERN GREEK LITERATURE
Preparation for the Greek Bicentennial celebration in 2021
The CENSUS project is now aiming at a first presentation of its results, initially focussing on the section “Authors 19th-21st century”, as part of the celebration of Greece’s 200th anniversary year (2021) – with support from the Laskaridis Foundation and as one of the 130 international research projects under the aegis of the collective program "Πρωτοβουλία 1821-2021" ('Initiative 1821-2021') (newspaper TO VIMA – 1 February 2020).

As Peter Mackridge, Prof. Emeritus of Modern Greek at the University of Oxford, wrote (in his 1992 review): “…”Until its next edition, [the Census] will be an indispensible guide for all English-speaking teachers and students of modern Greek literature”.
From the perspective of Greece, bibliographer Dimitris Daskalopoulos has referred to the Census as "[the record of] our fortune abroad" («το βιος μας στην ξενιτειά»).
