    The Research Technology in Human Sciences Seminar

    The French School at Athens is inaugurating in 2017 a new seminar, named Research technology in Human Sciences. Its aim is to bring together the different actors of research in order to discuss methods and tools used in Human and Social Science disciplines, such as Archaeology, History, Geography and Sociology, in order to present techniques and specialties that are not so well known or that are new, to share experiences and good practices. Specialists of spatial analysis, of digital recognition tools, of material and residues analysis, of databases, of network analysis, of restauration, etc. will be participating in this seminar.

    The meetings will take place on Mondays at 6pm, on a monthly basis, in the Lecture Room of the FSA.

    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 Mondays at 6pm (on a monthly basis), alternately in the Lecture Room of the EFA (Didotou 6) and in the Wiener Lab  at the ASCSA.

     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.


    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.

    The Lecture Series on ceramics will resume in January 2018...

     Seminar Anciens et Modernes

    L’Antiquité de la Modernité (depuis la Querelle des Anciens et des Modernes jusqu’à la la Révolution).

    Les Lumières n’ont pas été seulement une époque d’admiration  inconditionnelle envers le monde gréco-romain. Les critiques dont l’Antiquité  fait l’objet créent un espace de controverses sur l’utilité de l’expérience antique pour les Modernes et, par conséquent, sur le rôle que devrait occuper (ou ne pas occuper) l’exemple ancien dans le présent des sociétés modernes caractérisé par l’expansion européenne dans le monde, le triomphe  du commerce, l’articulation de la pensée politique avec l’économie. Le séminaire vise à reconstruire, à travers des textes historiques, philosophiques et politiques, les différentes interprétations du monde antique jusqu’au moment où la représentation de l’antiquité comme « enfance » de la civilisation occidentale l’emportera.

    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 2017/2018 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.

    Archaeology in Greece ONLINE

    MOSCHATO - Hydras St.-6097
    Moschato, Hydras St. 2 (property of D. Georgiou). Maria Petritaki (???' ????) reports on the discovery of a Hellenistic cemetery and a road (Fig. 1). The cemetery, which lies between the Long Walls, had a rubble peribolos wall, which also served as the retaining wall of the adjacent road. 19 burials were excavated: 6 cist graves, 4 pyres, 1 stone theke containing a kalpis (Fig. 2), 6 tile graves, 1 inurned cremation and 1 pit grave. All but two graves had burial offerings. One of the cist graves contained three burials. One of the graves contained 131 unguentaria, while another 112 such vessels (Fig. 3). The pyre contained a bronze coin. In addition, three locations for the placement of burial offerings were identified.
    A collaborative project with the BSA.
