Workshop

Due to the pandemic, it was not possible to hold a face-to-face workshop, as planned by the project. Therefore, an online discussion was held where we presented the project axes and the findings of the archival research. The discussion, which took place on 12 February 2021, was attended by historians in addition to the research team: Polymeris Voglis, Katerina Dede, Stratos Dordanas, Vangelis Karamanolakis, Katerina Lambrinou, Stratis Bournazos, Elias Nikolakopoulos, Tasos Sakellaropoulos and Vangelis Tzoukas, while we also received written comments from Pieter Lagrou.
