The network was initiated through a partnership between the Modern Greek studies communities and programs at the University of Oxford and the University of Amsterdam (UvA). It is initially funded by a TORCH (The Oxford Research Center in the Humanities) international partnerships scheme. It also receives financial support from the Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation, the department of Modern Greek Studies at the University of Amsterdam, and the Sub-faculty of Byzantine and Modern Greek (Oxford). The network’s website was made possible thanks to an “Innovative Initiatives Grant” by the Modern Greek Studies Association (MGSA).
