Title: Curating Greek Independence
Speakers: Ioulia Pentazou (University of Thessaly) and Alexandros
Teneketzis (Hellenic Open University)
Respondent: Konstantina Zanou (Columbia University)
Time: 12:00-1:30 pm ET
Link: https://columbiauniversity.zoom.us/j/97241706565

Description: How do Greek museums tackle thorny issues in the history of
the Greek independence movement? How can curation challenge our
understanding of the national past, shed light on blind spots, and place
the study of Greek independence in a larger transnational context? In this
seminar Ioulia Pentazou (University of Thessaly), Alexandros Teneketzis
(Hellenic Open University), and Konstantina Zanou (Columbia University)
discuss new curatorial approaches to 1821 and its legacies.
