Organized on the occasion of the bicentenary in 2021 of the Greek War of Independence, this symposium brings together scholars from the international community whose research explores the War of Independence from different – Greek, Ottoman, and international – perspectives, the intellectual climate that preceded and surrounded it, and the event’s global resonance from 1821 to the present. The symposium is an occasion for revisiting the War of Independence from a variety of angles and presenting unpublished material from the Ottoman archives, Eastern and Western Europe that may shed new light on this event’s resonances within and beyond Greece.
