 EFA 175

The École française d'Athènes celebrates its 175 years. 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Exhibitions, publications, lectures, focus on unpublished documents and little-known aspects will take us on a journey through time.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!

Véronique CHANKOWSKI, Director of the EFA

 EFA 1821-2021

The École française d'Athènes, 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 EFA 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 EFA 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 EFA
Gilles DE RAPPER, Director of Studies (Early Modern and Modern Eras)  at the EFA
Laurianne MARTINEZ-SÈVE, Director of Studies (Ancient and Byzantine Worlds) at the EFA

Programme

 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. Inaugurated during the academic year of 2021-2022, this new series aspires 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.

 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 École française d'Athènes 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 École française.

Organized by:
Laurianne MARTINEZ-SÈVE, Director of Studies (Ancient and Byzantine Worlds) at the EFA

Programme 2021-22 coming soon

 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.

Gilles DE RAPPER, Director of Studies (Early Modern and Modern Eras)  at the EFA

The École française d'Athènes (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 École française d'Athènes (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.

Organised by:
Panagiotis Iossif, Belgian School at Athens
Séléné Psôma, University of Athens
Harikleia Papageorgiadou, National Hellenic Research Foundation
Laurianne Martinez-Sève, French School at Athens
Irini Marathaki, German Archaeological Institut Athens

Programme 2021-22 coming soon

 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.
