Mark Mazower | Consulate General of Greece in Boston | March 4, 2021
On the bicentennial of the 1821 Greek Revolution, the Consulate General of Greece in Boston and College Year in Athens organized a celebratory lecture featuring Mark Mazower who explored how our understanding of the Greek uprising has been changed by recent scholarship and asked what questions remain. 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.
Professor Mazower also shared his views on the value and drawbacks of focusing on heroes, and the role played by religion and ethnicity.
