 EFA 1821-2021

The French School at Athens, alongside the institutions of its host country, is involved in the organization of several events linked to the celebration of the Bicentenary of the Greek Revolution in 2021 and wishes to make a contribution to this commemoration. True to its primary mission of developing knowledge on Hellenism and its role as a mediator between Greece and France, the FSA will promote in both countries critical thinking on the impact of this event in different fields, through exhibitions, publications and lectures. Committed to international cooperation and European research, the FSA aims to carry out these projects with multi-institutional partnerships within the French, Greek and European research and heritage community.

 

Organised by:
Véronique CHANKOWSKI, Director of the FSA
Gilles DE RAPPER, Director of Studies (Early Modern and Modern Eras)  at the FSA
Laurianne MARTINEZ-SÈVE, Director of Studies (Ancient and Byzantine Worlds) at the FSA

Recherches en cours à l’EFA

Following the three seminars dedicated to Delos and the workshop on Malia organised in November and December 2020, the French School at Athens present a cycle of lectures intended to present some of its new scientific programs.
The meetings will take place in the form of webinars and, as far as the health situation enables, in the conference room of the French School.

Observing the Bicentennial

The seminar is based on the assumption that the commemmorative celebrations of the Greek Revolution of 1821 are an object of study themselves and their analysis can help to understand the state of the present-day Greek society. The seminar will take a multidisciplinary approach to the commemorative moment of 2021 by studying the historiography of the revolution and independence as well as the way it is affected by the commemoration. It will examine the organization of the various events planned for 2021 through its actors, its controversies and its mythologies. Finally, it will look into the reception of the commemorative moment and its echoes in political and cultural life, both nationally and locally.

 Μέλη

The French School at Athens (EFA) and the American School of Classical Studies at Athens (ASCSA) are inaugurating a new cycle of lectures intended to present the research of their respective junior members. This platform is intended to stimulate discussions and exchanges among the members of the Foreign Schools. It promotes the research of the EFA and ASCSA junior members, as well as young scholars associated with the two Schools.  
The meetings will take place on Tuesdays at 18:00 on a monthly basis, at the ASCSA, and will be organized in the form of webinars.

Numismatic Meetings

Organised jointly by the Belgian School at Athens (EBSA), the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (EKPA), the National Hellenic Research Foundation (EIE-IIE/TEPA), the French School at Athens (EFA) and the German Archaeological Institute at Athens (DAI), the Numismatic Meetings are held on a monthly basis, on Mondays at 6pm (webinar).
The seminar aims to highlight trends in numismatic research in Greece, by drawing attention to the strength of the links that unite this discipline with history and archaeology. Indeed, all sources and all fields associated with numismatics may be the subject of papers: technology, metrology, iconography, and monetary, financial and economic history.
Speakers, from Greece and elsewhere, are invited to give presentations on the current state of the discipline, new research, or major new finds, in a lecture lasting about an hour, followed by questions.

Panagiotis Iossif, Belgian School at Athens

Laurianne Martinez-Sève, French School at Athens

Programme 2020-21

 SSH in progress

This closed seminar offers researchers who are completing/have just completed their HDR (habilitation à diriger des recherches) or who are running a funded program (ANR, ERC,…), the opportunity to present a methodological or theoretical difficulty they have encountered in this context. They shall submit to participants' prior reflection certain texts that make possible to discuss a theoretical concept, a historiographical controversy, an epistemological break, or a methodological innovation. Thus, after a short presentation by the speaker, the discussion will start from the texts sent beforehand.

 Beyond the wall: Study of fortifications   between architecture and history

Given the fact that our knowledge about fortifications makes progresses when we confront our field experience and when we compare concrete, well documented cases, Nicolas Genis and Thierry Lucas, scientific members of the French School at Athens, invited active researchers on archaeological sites in various places of the Ancient Greek world to gather and to discuss their views on a specific, problematic topic in the field of the study of fortifications. Starting with existing published works and with theoretical background, the discussion is powered by each participant’s recent work, especially field work.
Each session will then be transformed into an article submitted to the BCH, to compose a series entitled “Architecture et histoire des fortifications / Architecture and history of fortifications”.

Nicolas GENIS and Thierry LUCAS Scientific members at the FSA

Arachthos River. Varvara Papadopoulou (Ephorate of Antiquities of Arta) reports on the discovery of building and funerary remains discovered during cleaning works conducted at the Arachthos River.
