Tune in for a historian’s take on Greece’s future

May 09, 2022
Starting from the Greek Revolution of 1821, bestselling author and Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) Director of the Oxford Centre for Byzantine Research Peter Frankopan will look at what Greece’s recent history tells us about the future of its language, culture, and place in the world in an upcoming livestreamed talk, the final one in a series of three.

The lectures have so far touched on themes including warfare, gender, inequality, climate change, and pandemic.

Greece: Futures will take place Tuesday, May 10 in New York City, and will be streamed live at 6 p.m. EDT, concluding a series that sought to reexamine “global Greece” in the context of Africa, Asia, and the wider world.

The lecture is organized by the American School of Classical Studies at Athens and the Gennadius Library, where SNF has supported the advancement of scholarship in classics.
