Reflections on 1821: A discussion with historian Mark Mazower on the Greek Revolution

Date

03 March 2022

Abstract

On the occasion of the Greek Revolution's bicentennial, the Consulate General of Greece in Boston and College Year in Athens, co-organizes, under the auspices of the Embassy of Greece in Washington, an online celebratory lecture with Mark Mazower, the Ira D. Wallach Professor of History at Columbia University. In this celebratory discussion, Mark Mazower and Nicolas Prevelakis explore how our understanding of the Greek uprising has been changed by recent scholarship and asked what questions remain. Revolution? War of Independence? The question of what happened in the spring of 1821 and after was vigorously debated at the time and remains a lively subject of discussion today. Among the topics covered are the role of the Philiki Etaireia, the importance of European diplomacy and the emergence of public opinion as a factor in reshaping the continent. Mazower also shares his views at the value and drawbacks of focusing on heroes, and the role played by religion and ethnicity, and answered questions submitted by the audience.
