The Rise and Fall of Modern Greek in Australia's Universities: What Can a Quantitative Analysis Tell Us?
Hajek, John; Nicholas, Nick
Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, v3 n2 p195-209 2004
In this article, we look at the state of Modern Greek in Australian universities, focusing on quantitative analysis of its rise and fall in the relatively short period of 35 years since it was first taught as a university subject in Australia. We consider the possible reasons behind this trajectory, in particular correlations with changing demography and a concomitant decline in the study of Greek in the secondary sector. We also ponder the future of Modern Greek in Australia's tertiary system. (Contains 3 tables, 1 figure, and 3 notes.)
