A brief description of the lecture topic and main speaker is provided below.



Diaspora and nation are two of the most appealing and enduring notions used to explain the Greek Revolution of 1821. How accurately do they depict the events that shook the Ottoman Empire and mobilized people around the world to support the Greek cause? The talk will suggest two ways to approach empirically the foundational event of Greek history: a) the crucial international context in Europe and beyond; b) the divisions and conflicts among the revolutionaries that nearly lost the war. Both interpretations allow for a more extrovert and historically accurate understanding of the revolution.
