The Finnish Institute at Athens organizes a lecture and round-table discussion on the topic of philhellenism. This is a hybrid event open to the public via zoom.

It is part of Finnish Institute’s project «Other Philhellenisms: Northeastern Perspectives on Slavic and Baltic Philhellenism», which will continue to the year 2022.

The event will take place virtually, on 9 December 2021, at 18.00

Prof. Antonia (Ada) Dialla will give a lecture on “Russian Philhellenism: Inventing Greece, Reinventing Europe”. A panel of specialists in philhellenism and its aspects in the Slavic and Baltic as well as Nordic cultural spheres, in particular, will discuss the lecture, elaborating the themes of philhellenism which have received far less scholarly attention than its role in other parts of Europe and beyond.

The members of the panel are Elizabeth Fowden, George Kalpadakis, Petra Pakkanen and Mogens Pelt.
