BSA Event - MANIAS: Modern Desires for Greek Pasts

Thu 25 Oct 2018, 18:00

The British Academy, 10-11 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AH

This event is organised by the British School at Athens 

Why do we engage with the Greek past? Building on the recent BSA publications of Cretomania (2017)and Hellenomania (2018), this panel brings together specialists on Greek material culture to discuss modern responses to the Greek past. Topics that will be explored include the excavation of Troy and engagements with Greek vases in Ottoman Greece, and more recent responses to the ancient Minoan and Greek world.
