Date

Abstract

The teaching of the 1821 Revolution has come a long way in the university curriculum. Starting from its inclusion as a major event in the General History of the Medieval and Modern Ages, the revolution is today an often independent subject in undergraduate studies, while at the same time constituting an open field of research at the postgraduate and doctoral level. The presentation, through the example of the University of Athens, attempts to ask some central questions about the historical path of the teaching of 1821 in higher education. Starting from the decisive role played by the University of Athens for the formation of historical studies until the interwar period, but also its outstanding contribution afterwards, it will try to understand the teaching of the struggle in the context of the physiognomy and operation of this educational institution, as well as the broader historiographical developments and the current political and social situation of that time.
