The Center for Hellenic Studies of Harvard University is organizing, in collaboration with the Philhellenism Museum, a Workshop titled “Philhellenism across the Ages”. The aim of the workshop is to analyze the philhellenic spirit as a timeless phenomenon and to highlight the philhellenic movement during the Greek Struggle for Independence.

The Workshop will last two days and will examine the history of Philhellenism from antiquity to the present day, its relationship with nineteenth-century revolutionary movements, and the influence of the philhellenic spirit on the formation of new ideologies and currents in nineteenth-century art.

Philhellenism Museum will host the workshop, giving participants the opportunity to learn about the Museum’s rich collection of philhellenic exhibits (paintings, sculptures, letters, public documents, literary publications, personal belongings of Philhellenes, porcelain and clocks with philhellenic subject matter, etc.) and to come into direct contact with objects of particular historical and artistic value.

Dr. Christos Aliprantis, Research Scholar in Philhellenism for Young Researchers 2022-23 at the Center for Hellenic Studies, will oversee the academic coordination of the Workshop. The Workshop will take place on Saturday, March 18 and Sunday, March 19, 2023, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Visit the following link for further details and to register.
