Event Details

Greek-French political scientist Dr. Georges Tassiopoulos will present an online only lecture entitled "Græcia Gallica: The Greek diaspora in France", on Thursday 20 June 2024, at 7 pm, as part of the Greek History and Culture Seminars, offered by the Greek Community of Melbourne.

Dr. Tassiopoulos, with extensive expertise in Greek and French politics, as well as geopolitics, brings a wealth of knowledge to the discussion. Born in Athens in 1973, with familial roots tracing back to Messenia and the Dodecanese islands, Dr. Tassiopoulos relocated to France over two decades ago. His interdisciplinary approach, coupled with a deep empirical and theoretical understanding, promises a captivating exploration of the historical and contemporary ties between Greece and France.

The lecture will be streamed live on both Facebook and Youtube, ensuring accessibility to a wide audience. Dr. Tassiopoulos will illuminate the enduring connection between the two nations, spanning over 2600 years of shared history. From cultural exchanges to political alliances, the presentation will highlight the multifaceted relationship that continues to shape the identities of both countries.

An abstract of the lecture offers a glimpse into the profound insights Dr. Tassiopoulos will provide: "The major purpose of this presentation is to explain to a general audience, on the one hand, the longstanding Greek presence in France, and, on the other hand, the essential role played by important Greek French individuals in both countries." By delving into the past and present, attendees will gain a deeper understanding of the complex interplay between Greece and France, empowering them to navigate the future with knowledge and foresight.
