More funding for Greek Studies at Flinders University
In June this year LOGOS organised two major international conferences: Ageing in a Foreign Land and Greek Research. Ageing in a Foreign Land focused on ageing from a cultural and linguistic perspective and dealt with matters regarding ageing ethnic communities in Australia.
The conference offered the opportunity to discuss urgent national issues regarding ageing and gave a voice to those who are still remaining silent in Australia. The Greek Research conference focused on themes relating to the diachronic importance of Greek language and culture and its ongoing impact on our lives.
The 11th publication titled Living in a Cultural Wilderness, was launched during the conference. The publication includes high quality academic papers which are peer reviewed. Both conferences were very successful. Over the last few years one of our major goals was to create opportunities for a succession plan for LOGOS.
"We have exciting news", Professor Michael Tsianikas, of the Flinders University said.
During the conference dinner, organised by the Foundation for Hellenic Studies at the Adelaide Pavilion, the Hon. Tom Koutsantonis, Treasurer for South Australia, announced a government grant of $2 million towards a succession plan for LOGOS.
"We are ecstatic about this highly promising new development. We would like to thank the Government of South Australia for this inspirational decision and its vision for the future of Australian education and culture. We also thank the Foundation for Hellenic Studies for its ongoing support and inspiring leadership to promote Greek language and culture", Mr Tsianikas said.
