British Professor Peter Mackridge was granted honorary Greek citizenship during a ceremony in London earlier in the week for his services to Greek studies.

Mackridge, Professor of Modern Greek at the University of Oxford from 1996 until his early retirement in 2003, is a prolific writer on the Modern Greek Enlightenment and the modern Greek language.

His research interests cover various areas in the Greek language, literature and cultural history since AD 1100, but he specializes in the period since 1750.

The current focus of his research is the language and content of Greek literature 1700-50, that is, immediately before the rise of Greek nationalism.
