*Nineteenth Annual Hellenic Lecture*   E. Delacroix, *La Grèce sur les
ruines de Missolonghi* © Musée des Beaux-Arts de Bordeaux, France *  “The
Greek Revolution of 1821 and its Multiple Legacies”* *Professor Gonda Van
Steen* *Thursday 11 March 2021 at 6pm (GMT)*

Since the outbreak of the Greek War of Independence in 1821, the Greek
people have celebrated three major anniversaries: the 50th, 100th, and
150th anniversary date of the inception of this revolutionary war that led
to sovereign statehood after nearly four centuries of Ottoman rule. These
three jubilees, each with their own legacies, have come to represent three
different ways of celebrating Greek statehood that have, nonetheless, much
in common. They posited a linear progression from Greek antiquity through
postclassical, Byzantine, and post-Byzantine (Ottoman) times. The lecture
will explore in what ways the celebrations and re-enactments, with their
commemorative events and symbolic images, acquired a prescriptive
character, which advanced their aim to educate youth in state-promoted
nationalism, and to what extent the present 200th anniversary celebrations
differ from the three aforementioned ones.



Professor Gonda Van Steen is Koraës Chair of Modern Greek and Byzantine
History, Language and Literature, Director of Centre for Hellenic Studies,
King’s College London



The Lecture will be hosted by Professor Ken Badcock, Senior Vice-Principal
(Academic Strategy, Partnerships and Resources) and Chairman of the
Hellenic Institute Steering Group at Royal Holloway, University of London
