International Conference: "A coin for the dead, coins for the living"

 

23439207 312705605877959 861650559 n

 

We are happy to announce our forthcoming conference of "A coin for the dead, coins for the living. Charon's obol: The end of a myth?". An international panel of specialists, a multinational collaboration (the Belgian School at Athens, the Netherlands Institute at Athens, the Italian Archaeological School at Athens, the European Center for Numismatic Studies, the Université de Lille-3-HALMA, the Radboud University Nijmegen), and an exciting subject promising very interesting methodological study cases from all over the Mediterranean.

When: 23rd to 25th of November, 2017
Time: Starting at 9 to 9:30 am (check the program for day 1, day 2 and day 3)
Where: The Italian Archaeological School at Athens, Parthenonos 14, 117 42, Athens

This is not a conference focusing exclusively on coins; the organizers want to address questions of context, of recording excavation coins, and of comparisons between the evidence from the Mediterranean world and Northern European sites.

We are looking forward to seeing you all, archaeologists, numismatists, historians or just... aficionados of the ancient world and recording of big data!

"Death in the Greek World" (MA-PhD course)

The MA-PhD course Death in the Greek World, organized in cooperation with the University of Groningen, deals with various aspects of death in Greece. The diachronic approach starts with prehistory and continues through the historical periods to traditional Greek laments and 19th century neoclassical grave monuments and touches upon contemporary issues of migration, Orthodox religion and cremation. 

The multidisciplinary scope of the course, which will take place from 27 March-5 April 2018, includes archaeology, anthropology, history, classical Greek literature, epigraphy, social sciences and bioarchaeology. Both methodological innovations and theoretical discourses will be highlighted. An excursion through Attica and South Greece will take the participants to a number of interesting and relevant sites.
Organizers: Prof. Sofia Voutsaki (University of Groningen), Dr. Tryfon Bampilis (Netherlands Institute at Athens), Prof. Onno van Nijf (University of Groningen).

Αίτηση συμμετοχής (μέχρι 1 Δεκεμβρίου 2017!)

 

From 18-28 January 2018, the University of Amsterdam, its Institute for Migration and Ethnic Studies, the department of Social and Cultural Anthropology of VU University Amsterdam and the Netherlands Institute in Athens, in collaboration with Dutch and Greek universities, organize the intensive winter course "Migration in the Margins of Europe" for master and PhD students in Social Sciences. The winter school "Migration in the Margins of Europe" will take place for the seventh consecutive year. 

The Eastern Mediterranean with its geographical position at the crossroads of Europe, Asia and Africa and in particular the large Aegean basin with its islets and islands serving as stepping stones for migratory movement, became a major "entry gate" to Europe. Here migrants are trying to survive and make plans for the future despite the stigmatization and marginalization they encounter. Therefore a major part of our seminar will focus on how immigrants experience such new conditions and how they adapt in the new cultural contexts.
The course will be supplemented with a small field research and students will be able to contribute to our migration project by recording and illustrating life experiences of various migrants.

Concepts of Crisis: Considering Democracy

This academic semester, the Netherlands Institute at Athens in collaboration with the Research Centre for Greek Philosophy of the Academy of Athens organizes a series of 3 lecture sessions under the general title "Concepts of Crisis". The aim of the lecture series is to bring together scholars from Greek and Dutch Universities to examine the concepts of "crisis" (not only financial but also socio-political or conceptual), in order to contribute to the understanding of the way crisis situations reform the way we perceive the world and the way our societies transform.

With this initiative, the Netherlands Institute hopes to contribute to the development of a Dutch-Greek academic network and to integrate the views from various perspectives through an interdisciplinary approach.

The second session "Considering Democracy" will take place on Thursday 12 October at 18.00 at the NIA premises and will focus on how Democracy is affected by the financial crisis that marks our era.


Speakers

Dr. Kristof Jacobs 
Assistant Professor of Political Science, Radboud University of Nijmegen
"For better or worse? The impact of the economic crisis on democracy"


Dr. Nicholas Vrousalis

Assistant Professor in Political Philosophy, Leiden University 
"Does European democracy have a future?"


Moderator - Discussant

Διάλεξη "Vermeer's harmonic compositions: an insight" (Δρ. Ζένια Δημητρακοπούλου)

 

Vermeer lecture 1

Vermeer's oeuvre stand apart from the paintings of his contemporaries. Which qualities make his artworks so unique?
On Monday 22 May Dr Zenia Dimitrakopoulou will give us an insight into his elaborate and unique approach. Through her lecture "Vermeer's harmonic compositions: an insight" we will comprehend how carefully his artworks were planned and structured; how important the harmony of the composition was to his artistic vision; and how each artwork conveyed a deeper meaning through symbols consistently used by the artist.
In addition, the artist's link to the leading Dutch astronomer and scientist Christiaan Huygens will be explored, unfolding an interesting scenario –on which a novel written recently by Zenia Dimitrakopoulou is based.
The lecture by Dr. Dimitrakopoulou will start at 19.00 in the NIA-library.

This intensive course will take place between 1-23 July and will accept applications from outstanding last year BA, Master & 1st year PhD students in Social/Political Sciences and Humanities. The aim of the seminar is to give students the experience of filming in a highly diverse and multi-layered urban setting, present the product (film) of their research in Athens in a special section in the Athens Ethnographic Film Festival on November 2017 (conditions for admission will apply) and have an overview of current debates and research topics in visual anthropology and ethnography. By participating and learning the filming and production process, the students gain practical experience in the new context, use their skills, make new contacts and learn how to present their findings within wider local and global contexts.
