Conference: From Revolution to Regress - The history of the Greek state & economy
Apr 7, 2012, 10am-5:30pm
Conference at the Royal Ontario Museum, April 7, will examine the history of the Greek state and economy from the revolution of 1821 to the current crisis. Historians from Canada, Greece and the Unites States will discuss the history of the Greek revolution of 1821, the formation of the Greek state and the course of its economy from the nineteenth century to the current crisis.
History can offer a unique gaze to the trajectory and development of the Greek state, its economy and the role of institutions, such as the Church, especially in times of crisis.
There will be presentations by seven speakers, Dean Kostantaras from Northwestern University, Maria Christina Chatziioannou from the National Hellenic Research Foundation in Athens, Thomas Gallant from University of California-Davis, Sakis Gekas from York University, Tassos Anastassiadis from McGill University, Kostas Kostis from University of Athens and Michalis Psalidopoulos from Tufts University.
