New lecture series "Concepts of Crisis"

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 introductory session on Crisis in Antiquity that will take place on Monday the 25th of September will focus on economic crises in antiquity and on the way ancient Greeks perceived and dealt with different crises situations.

Professor of Ancient Philosophy and Medicine, Utrecht University
"The Idea of Crisis in Ancient Philosophy: Plato, Aristotle and some successors"

Prof. Dr. Panagiotis Iossif

Moderators - Discussants

Dr. Catherine Brégianni, Greek Modern History Research Centre

The session will take place in the NIA-library and will start at 18.00.

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.

Summer School 2017 " Visual Ethnography of Cityscapes "

 IMG 6113

The Netherlands Institute at Athens, the Athens Ethnographic Film Festival "Ethnofest" and the department of Social and Cultural Anthropology of Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU) are happy to announce the Summer School 2017 "Visual Ethnography of Cityscapes" organized in collaboration with the Laboratory of Ethnography of Panteion University and staff from other Dutch and Greek universities.

About the course:
Nowadays, visual anthropology has become an almost indispensable tool for anyone engaging in ethnographic research, visual analysis, studies of material culture or critical engagements with cinema, photography and other forms of cultural display. 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.

Deadline for application: 28 April 2017.

The number of participants is limited (max. 30 students), so we encourage those interested to register early!
