GREECE: FROM JUNTA TO CRISIS
Cultural genealogies and comparative perspectives
Hellenic Centre (16-18 Paddington Street, Marylebone, London W1U 5AS)
Saturday, 20 September 2014

The event, organized jointly by the Universities of Birmingham and Oxford with the support of the Hellenic Centre, aims to mark the 40th anniversary since the fall of junta in Greece and to examine how the crisis has led Greeks to rethink political attitudes, cultural discourses and conceptions of identity established since 1974.

It is part of a two-year research network funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. This research project is led by Dimitris Tziovas (Principal Investigator) and Dimitris Papanikolaou (Co-Investigator) and its next open workshop is scheduled for May 2015 (University of Birmingham).
