Peter Mackridge


Peter MACKRIDGE is Professor Emeritus of Modern Greek at the University of Oxford and a visiting professor at King’s College London. He holds an honorary doctorate from the University of Athens. His research on Pontic Greek spoken in Turkey has led directly to the current scholarly activity on the topic. His books include The Modern Greek Language (1985), Dionysios Solomos (1989) and Language and National Identity in Greece, 1766-1976 (2009). He is co-author (with David Holton and Irene Philippaki-Warburton) of Greek: A Comprehensive Grammar of the Modern Language (1997; 2nd edn 2012) and Greek: An Essential Grammar of the Modern Language (2004). All five of these books have also been published in Greek translation. He was co-editor (with Eleni Yannakakis) of Ourselves and Others: the Development of a Greek Macedonian Cultural Identity since 1912 (1997) and Contemporary Greek Fiction in a United Europe: From Local History to the Global Individual (2004). He has published nearly 100 academic articles and book chapters in English and Greek, and a collection of his essays in Greek entitled Εκμaγεία της ποίησης: ΣολωμόςΚαβάφηςΣεφέρηςappeared in 2008. He has edited Greek editions of Eroica (1982) and ΣτουΧατζφράγκου (1988) by Kosmas Politis and both the Greek/Italian text and the English translations in The Free Besieged and Other Poems by Dionysios Solomos (2000; new edition forthcoming 2014).
