Title

The Greek War of Independence and the United States: Narratives of myth and reality

Date

19–20 March 2021

Abstract

To commemorate the bicentenary of the start of the Greek Revolution in 1821, the Laboratory of Narrative Research of the School of English of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki hosts a two-day symposium titled “The Greek War of Independence and the United States: Narratives of Myth and Reality”. The symposium seeks to explore the global significance of the Greek War of Independence through its powerful impact upon the American society and culture. The ideological ties binding the Greek and the American revolutions will be examined from the perspectives of history, politics and diplomacy, social resonance and cultural production. The symposium’s dual focus will 1) provide insights into the Greek national identity-formation process, and 2) show the American response to the central Greek revolutionary events through the writings and actions of American politicians and citizens who supported the Greek struggle for freedom.
