One of the main reasons for our visit to Greece this time of the year had to do with the lecture that Alexandros is giving the coming Thursday at the Byzantine and Christian Museum of Athens.
But there are of course further interesting academic venues taking place in Athens these days. One set of spring lectures is organized by the Norwegian Institute at Athens. Here follows the program:
Also outside Athens, there are things happening that we’d like to make a reference to.
Again from the Norwegian Institute at Athens, a conference on Naxos during the weekend of Palm Sunday (perhaps an excellent opportunity for a spring break for those in Greece?):
A bit later in April, Claude Iverné is presenting in France “A particular history of photography in Sudan”
Already today, and as we write these lines, our friend Flora Vafea is giving a talk at Bibliotheca Alexandrina with the title “Greek Astronomers from Helenistic to Early Byzantine Alexandria”.
Finally, Alexandros will travel in the end of March to Komotini to give a talk at the University of Thrace about “Greek Texts from Medieval Nubia”. More from this event in due time…
