For those who missed our previous webinar on January 21 - “Our Intense Biopolitical Present: Covid and Before” - it is now online. You can watch it on our YouTube channel:

Six amazing presentations and a lively discussion that brought together unexpected insights on biopolitics and the contemporary moment: from Dimitris Plantzos's analysis of the 'archaeopolitics' of the Greece 2021 committee, to Elisabeth Kirtsoglou's take on fake news and conspiracy theories in a biopolitical environment; and from Paul Economides's and Olga Demetriou's exposition of how discrimination against Latino workers and refugees is reinforced in a state of emergency, to Nelli Kambouri's and Dimitra Kotouza's rethinking of the possibility and the limits of a biopolitics from below.

For a full playlist of our previous roundtable events see here:

Last, but not least: We will soon be launching the new dedicated website of our network under the name Modern Greek Studies Now: The website is realized thanks to an award by the MGSA and will host our network's blog, our current activities, an archive of past activities and events, a 'book-self’ with alternative and personal book reviews, and more. Stay tuned for news about our web-launch, which will follow soon!

With best regards,

Maria Boletsi, Kristina Gedgaudaite, Dimitris Papanikolaou, on behalf of
