The research program Sources of Modern Greek Theatre History of the Institute for Mediterranean Studies has from now on in its possession the theatrical archive of Nikolaos Laskaris (1868-1945). Laskaris is one of the most significant 19th -20th century playwrights and the first historian of Modern Greek Theatre. The archive has been donated to the Institute by his granddaughter Ioli Antonopoulou. It consists of three parts:
- The third volume of N. Laskaris, History of Modern Greek Theatre, which remains unpublished and covers the years 1844-1868.
- The also unpublished enriched version of his French-Greek lexicon of theatrical terms, and finally
- A collection of articles and historical documents concerning modern Greek theatre of the 19th and 20th centuries.
