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

In the framework of its activities on modern Greece, the French School at Athens successfully organizes since 2016 a cycle of seminars about Modern Greek pottery, which represents an important chapter of the century-old traditional material culture of Greece which is inherently linked to all aspects of men’s lives.
The 2019 cycle of seminars will take place from January to May. The lectures will take place at the French School at Athens, on Wednesdays at 7pm.

Η Γαλλική Σχολή Αθηνών, στο πλαίσιο των δραστηριοτήτων της για τον νεότερο ελληνικό πολιτισμό, πραγματοποιεί με επιτυχία από το 2016 μια σειρά διαλέξεων με θέμα τη 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.
Ο κύκλος των διαλέξεων για το 2019 θα ξεκινήσει τον Ιανουάριο και θα διαρκέσει έως τον Μάϊο. Οι διαλέξεις θα πραγματοποιούνται στην Γαλλική Σχολή Αθηνών τις Τετάρτες στις 19:00.

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 7pm.
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

 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.

Organised by:
EPHE, CERCEC (UMR 8083), CERHIC (Université de Reims), École française de Rome, École française d'Athènes, Radboud University, Nimejen (NL), Université de Barcelone, Université européenne, Budapest, Université de Macédoine, Thessalonique, Université Saint-Joseph, Beyrouth, Université du saint-Esprit, Kaslik
