Classical debt ‘after’ the crisis: Greek antiquity in the era of Grecovery

April 7 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Royce Hall, 314, 10745 Dickson Ct
Los Angeles, CA 90095 United States

Drawing from her latest book, The Classical Debt: Greek Antiquity in an Era of Austerity, Johanna Hanink, Professor at Brown University, shows that our idealized image of ancient Greece dangerously shapes our view of the modern country and its recent crises. For nearly a decade, Greece has been notorious for its monetary, sovereign debt. Yet for more than two centuries, claims have been made for another type of “Greek debt,” namely the symbolic debt that Europe—or even “Western civilization”—allegedly owes…

This special event presents rebetiko music inspired by the fearsome prison in Thessaloniki, dramatic readings of the testimonies of the prisoners, and images from inside the cells. Once a Byzantine fortress known as the Heptapyrgion, the prison is now used as offices for the archaeological service, for performances, and for exhibitions. Yet, the voices of the prisoners and the music they inspired still resonates within the structure's walls.

The Greek Chorio

February 22 - February 23
Royce Hall, 10745 Dickson Court, UCLA
Los Angeles, California 90095 United States
+ Google Map

The Greek chorio has been a frequent subject of interest to anthropologists, who have written extensively about rituals, kinship structures, work and gender. Increasingly, the subject has come under the scrutiny of archaeologists, who have carefully traced the material remains of villages and households in order to reconstruct the lives of those who lived outside of better studied cities and towns. This symposium aims to examine the Greek village over time -- through its most ancient manifestations, its Byzantine remains,…

Antony Eastmond, Art and Cultural Resistance between Islam and Christianity

February 7 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Royce Hall, 314, UCLA + Google Map

The eastern frontier between Islam and Christianity in the thirteenth century was extremely porous: artists, merchants and pilgrims carried ideas and goods across it with ease. The results of this movement are visible in the churches and mosques, monasteries and madrasas that survive in modern territories of Armenia, Georgia and eastern Turkey. These buildings are often all but indistinguishable in their construction and decoration, suggesting a picture of deeply interwoven populations. This lecture explores the limits of this convergence, and…
