With great sorrow, we report the death on December 8, 2017, of Professor Marios Byron Raizis, a pillar of Byron studies internationally and in Greece and a founding advisor and continuing supporter of both the Messolonghi Byron Society and the Messolonghi Byron Research Center. Professor Raizis, who held graduate degrees from Purdue University and New York University, taught for many years at Southern Illinois State University before joining the English faculty of Athens University in 1978. Well known as a scholar publishing on Romantic literature, especially Lord Byron, Professor Raizis was also a Greek-to-English and English-to-Greek translator of Solomos, Seferis, and other poets.

13th International Student Byron Conference

21-26 May 2018

Theme: “Byron and Fiction”

The Messolonghi Byron Research Center welcomes proposals for 20-minute papers to be delivered at the 13th International Student Byron Conference, to be held at Messolonghi May 21-26, 2018.

The conference theme will be "Byron and Fiction”, a topic that might be approached in various ways. Presentations might center on the fiction Byron read and was inspired by (for instance Tom Jones or Anastasius, or Memoirs of a Greek), fiction writers he inspired (the Brontes, Puskin, and many others), fictive representations of Byron (from Caroline Lamb’s roman a clef Glenarvon to William Gibson and Bruce Sterling’s cyberpunk The Difference Engine, Ben Markovits’s Byron trilogy, and beyond)—or Byron’s own works considered as fiction. Presenters at the conference will span all academic levels from undergraduates through graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty members.

Proposals should be sent by email to Professor Peter Graham ( and Mrs. Rodanthi-Rosa Florou, President of the International Byron Research Center ( by February 1, 2018.

Further conference details will follow soon.

Detailed descriptions of the previous International Student Conferences can be found on the Messolonghi Byron Society's web page,
