    The programme of lectures, open to the entire international academic community, reflects the different fields of study (archaeology, history and art history, philology, anthropology, and literature) and the different chronological periods (protohistory, the ancient world, the Byzantine age, and the modern and contemporary eras) that are at the heart of the work of the French School at Athens and associated institutions.
    The sessions take place on Thursdays at 7pm, in the FSA's lecture room, on a monthly basis.


    Organised by:
    Alexandre FARNOUX, Director of the FSA
    Amélie PERRIER, Director of Studies (Ancient and Byzantine Worlds) at the FSA
    Tassos ANASTASSIADIS, Director of Studies (Early Modern and Modern Eras)  at the FSA

    Young Researchers' Workshop

    The Workshop brings together a number of speakers to consider epistemological and methodological questions at the heart of current research trends, such as the reconstruction of vanished environments, whether (for example) musical history or landscapes, two themes which were adopted in 2013. This undertaking, which aims to spark discussions, is a key component of the work of the members and, more generally, of the young researchers associated with the FSA (as current or former scholarship-holders, doctoral students with funding for research in a specific area, and post-doctoral scholars), although it is of course open to other participants.
    The sessions take place on Mondays at 5pm, in the FSA's lecture room, on a monthly basis.

     Lecture Series on Ceramics (16th - 20th century)

    The French School at Athens is organising a lecture series on the theme of modern Greek ceramics, an important chapter in the history of material culture in Greece and legacy of a long tradition that is closely linked to many different aspects of everyday life. The lectures for the academic year 2016/2017 will chiefly focus on vase workshops and uses, as well as a number of more specific topics, and will thus cover a largely overlooked period that extends from the 16th-18th centuries to the middle of the 20th century. The aim of these lectures is to present the synoptic work of researchers who work in this area, but also to encourage junior researchers to take an interest in it. A detailed programme will be published at a later date.
    The lectures will take place at the French School at Athens, two Wednesdays a month, at 7pm.

    2016-2017 Programme

    Η Γαλλική Σχολή Αθηνών προγραμματίζει σειρά διαλέξεων με θέμα την νεότερη ελληνική κεραμική, η οποία αποτελεί σημαντικό κεφάλαιο στην ιστορία του υλικού πολιτισμού της Ελλάδας, με μακραίωνη παράδοση, άρρηκτα συνδεδεμένη με όλες τις εκφάνσεις του ανθρώπινου βίου. Η θεματική των διαλέξεων για το ακαδημαϊκό έτος 2016-2017 θα εστιάσει κυρίως στα εργαστήρια και στις χρήσεις των αγγείων αλλά και σε ορισμένα ειδικότερα θέματα, καλύπτοντας μια εν πολλοίς άγνωστη χρονική περίοδο που ξεκινά από το διάστημα του 16ου -18ου αιώνα, και φτάνει  έως τα μέσα του 20ού αιώνα. Στόχος των διαλέξεων είναι η παρουσίαση συνθετικών εργασιών για την νεότερη κεραμική από ερευνητές-μελετητές που έχουν ασχοληθεί με σχετικά θέματα και, βεβαίως, η ενθάρρυνση νέων ερευνητών να ασχοληθούν με το συγκεκριμένο ερευνητικό πεδίο. Περισσότερες λεπτομέρειες θα ανακοινωθούν με το αναλυτικό πρόγραμμα).
    Οι διαλέξεις θα πραγματοποιούνται στην Γαλλική Σχολή Αθηνών δύο Τετάρτες το μήνα, στις 19:00.

    Numismatic Meetings

    Organised jointly by the French School at Athens, the Belgian School at Athens, the University of Athens and the German Archaeological Institute, the Numismatic Meetings are held on a monthly basis, on Mondays at 6pm.
    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.

     Workshop Christianities

    Eastern Christianities went through comparable processes of development, but connections have never been made between their respective historiographies. The aim of this project is to compare the changes in these different Churches and cultural areas using a number of criteria (book production, details of dogma, monastic orders and so on) and to study the different forms of connection between the (Catholic and Protestant) East and West, but also within the East itself. Key research areas:  cultural areas within the longue durée, studies of religious themes, learning, tradition and the history of texts.
    This workshop is one of the projects to be carried out in 2016/2017 as part of a call issued by the Campus Condorcet public institution in order to support cooperative academic activities.
    The workshops will take place in Paris.

     Urban Mediterranean Societies seminar - History and Anthropology

    This monthly seminar provides training and exchanges of information for researchers and Master's and doctoral students. It aims to contribute to reflection on the notions and practices of urban and civic life in the context of Mediterranean towns, and at the heart of this analysis places the different forms of cosmopolitanism, heritage development, identification and territorialisation that define these urban societies. The term 'Mediterranean' does not presuppose the existence of some 'cultural zone' with well defined borders, but it makes it possible to outline a historical perspective shaped by the heritage of the Ottoman Empire and of European colonial expansion on the southern shore of the Mediterranean. It also invites consideration of the relations between cultural zone and forms of urban life.

    Frequency and times: monthly, the first Monday of the month, from 5pm to 7pm.
    Location: INALCO, Room 3.15 - 65 rue des Grands Moulins, 75013 Paris. Metro: Bibliothèque François Mitterrand.
