Monday, October 16th
In May, 2017, renowned scholar of Japanese classical and modern literature Professor Doris G. Bargen retired after many years of service at UMass Amherst.
The conclusion of the 2016–17 academic year saw the well-earned retirement of Marios Philippides, who had been teaching at UMass Amherst since 1978. Prof. Philippides holds degrees in Classics from Queens College (BA, 1972) and SUNY Buffalo (MA 1976, PhD 1978). His main scholarly focus has been the 1453 fall of Constantinople, the annexation of the Balkans, and the conquest of the Franco-Byzantine Levant by the Ottoman Turks.
