With enrolments exceeding 150 participants, the Greek History and Culture Seminar series continues to attract interest from new students and has proven, in its first weeks, to be an outstanding success.
The Greek History and Culture Seminar series, presented by the Greek Orthodox Community of Melbourne & Victoria and La Trobe University has provided a rare opportunity for Greek Australians to learn more of their heritage and in this, the first part of the series, titled “Antiquity, Classical Greece & Hellenistic Period”.
We would like to thank all participants, interested members of the community and in particular the academics for their contribution to the success of the first seminar series.
The seminar series will have a two week break during the Easter period and will recommence on Thursday the 5th of May with Thomas Iliopoulos ‘How the Greek language influenced the English Language’ and Tassos Stathopoulos ‘The Ecumenical dimension of Hellenism from the 4thcentury BC and beyond’.
Additionally, to conclude part 1 of the series a further lecture has been scheduled for Thursday 12th May with Dr. Kostas Vitkos presenting ‘State and local institutions in Macedonia during the reign of the last two Antigonides (221 - 168 BCE)’.
Part 2 of the seminar series will commence on Thursday 26th of May at the Greek Community Centre with a lecture titled ‘Greece under the Roman Empire’.
Once again we would like to thank all the participants and lecturers for their encouraging words and their invaluable support and assistance.
