The Phrixos B. Papachristidis chair in Modern Greek and Greek-Canadian Studies will be hosting in 2011-2012 a series of events on Greece upon the occasion of the 190th anniversary of the Greek War of Independence.

Given the current Greek debt / EU crisis the chair initiates a Brown-bag lunch interdisciplinary discussion series open to anyone interested in understanding the current crisis.
