Prof P A Mackridge

Peter A. Mackridge, M.A., D.Phil.
Professor of Modern Greek (retired)



Peter joined the Faculty as Lecturer in Modern Greek in 1981. He was Professor of Modern Greek from 1996 until his early retirement in 2003. His research interests cover various areas in Greek language, literature and cultural history since AD 1100, but he specializes in the period since 1750. His current interests include the history of the Greek language, Greek language ideologies, and the history of Greek cultural nationalism, but also aspects of poetry such as versification. His translations of stories by the 19th-century authors Vizyenos and Papadiamandis and a collection of haikus by the 21st-century poet Haris Vlavianos were published in 2014-15. Peter is an editor of the journal Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies and a member of the editorial board of the Greek journal Kondyloforos. He publishes book reviews in the Greek magazines The Athens Review of Books and The Books’ Journal. He was awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Athens in 2008.
