How do Greek museums tackle thorny issues in the history of the Greek independence movement? How can curation challenge our understanding of the national past, shed light on blind spots, and place the study of Greek independence in a larger transnational context? In this seminar Ioulia Pentazou (University of Thessaly), Alexandros Teneketzis (Hellenic Open University), and Konstantina Zanou (Columbia University) discuss new curatorial approaches to 1821 and its legacies.
