On this occasion, we will present various events on site and online throughout this anniversary year which will be celebrated from September 11, 2021 to November 22, 2022 and will honour the School's history through its archives, a vast field whose exploration constitutes one of the components of our research programs for the period 2022-2026.
Exhibitions, publications, lectures, focus on unpublished documents and little-known aspects will take us on a journey through time. So let's go through the pages of the history of our School together!

 Diverse perspectives on... the city

« Diverse perspectives on… » is a diachronic seminar that brings the scientific members of the EFA together around a common theme meant to be renewed every year. The theme adopted in 2022, for the first edition of this seminar, is the city, which is addressed from the perspective of crafts, urbanism, trade and burials, among others. Every month, one or two scientific members invite an expert to present research that echoes their ongoing work at the EFA.
The meetings will take place on Tuesdays at 18.00 in the form of webinars and, as far as the health situation enables, in the conference room of the École française.

Organized by:
The scientific members of the two sections of the École française d'Athènes (Ancient and Byzantine Studies Section / Modern and Contemporary Studies Section).

 Seminars on Greek and Roman Antiquity

The Seminars on Greek and Roman Antiquity aim at presenting the most recent findings of research on the ancient Greek and Roman World, as well as on the wider region of the Eastern Mediterranean. They aspire to engage all disciplines relating to the study of the ancient world, focusing both on the written sources and on the material evidence, through the participation of experienced as well as younger scholars.
The seminars are co-organised by the Institute of Historical Research of the NHRF, the Department of History and Archaeology of the National Kapodistrian University of Athens and the École Française d’Athènes, and intend to encourage discussion between scholars of different disciplinary backgrounds. The Seminars are held monthly and are hosted every year by one of the three organizing institutions.

In 2022-2023 the seminars will be hosted at the National Hellenic Research Foundation.

 Numismatic Meetings

Co-organised by the Belgian School at Athens (EBSA), the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (EKPA), the National Hellenic Research Foundation (EIE-IIE/TEPA), and the École française d'Athènes (EFA), the Numismatic Meetings are held on a monthly basis, on Mondays at 6.30pm (webinar).
The aim of the seminar is to demonstrate the strength of the numismatic research in Greece by pointing out the links and interactions of the discipline with history and archaeology. Every source and method related to numismatics will keep the attention of the seminar:
technical aspects, metrology, iconography, monetary, financial and economic history.
Scholars are invited to deliver a one-hour conference presenting the “what’s new” in numismatics, their latest studies and important new discoveries in the field. It is followed by a session of discussion and questions.

 Modern and Contemporary Studies Seminar

The Modern and Contemporary Studies Seminar is a moment of exchange gathering guest speakers and researchers from the programs of the modern and contemporary section. They are invited to present their work in connection with the structuring themes of the EFA and the research agenda of the section, as well as with current research on the Balkans and the Eastern Mediterranean. As a meeting place for researchers from different backgrounds, the seminar aims to promote the research carried out at the EFA in modern and contemporary history, anthropology, geography, sociology and art history (and beyond), but also to disseminate to the School’s community research carried out by several institutions in the area.
For 2022, centenary of the Greek army’s retreat from Asia Minor, the seminar will be in part dedicated to issues pertaining to what has be called “the Asia Minor catastrophe”, the exchange of populations and the conflict’s memories.
