1821: The Migration of Revolutionary Ideas (Pt 1):Roderick Beaton (KCL) (Chair), Ada Dialla (Athens School of Fine Arts), Efi Gazi (University of the Peloponnese), and Kostas Tampakis (NHRF)

Abstract: Ideas about making a revolution – ideas that are in themselves revolutionary: these two back-to-back panel discussions, one in Athens, the other in London, will revolve around both concepts, as ways of understanding the outbreak of revolution by Orthodox Christian, Greek-speaking subjects of the Ottoman empire in the spring of 1821, that would lead to the creation of Greece as a modern nation-state in 1830. Speakers will focus on the transmission, or ‘migration’, of such ideas across the European continent in the wake of 1789 Revolution in France and their impact in creating the climate in which a Greek revolution became possible in 1821. 

The second in this two-part series will be co-hosted with the Hellenic Society and take place on Monday 22 February, 18.00-20.00 (GMT). For more information go to: https://21in21.co.uk/events/
