The 10th International Conference on Greek Research was a 4-day event where research papers were presented on studies related to Greek and Cypriot themes.  A vibrant program was dedicated to papers and posters relating to Greek and Cypriot studies that will continue the tradition of the international conferences on Greek Research and a one day professional development for teachers in Modern Greek. The conference included the following areas of research: The 2nd International Conference on Ageing in a Foreign Land addressed the needs of the migrant diasporas with regard to ageing and health, service provision, language and cultural identity issues of Greek and other Culturally and Linguistically Diverse communities in Australia and overseas.  We welcomed attendance from academics, researchers, practitioners, policy makers and aged care providers. We were particularly (but not exclusively) seeking papers and posters on:
  • Classical Studies
  • Cyprus
  • Education
  • History and Migration
  • Learning languages online
  • Literature and Philosophy
  • Professional development for teachers in Modern Greek
  • Society and culture
