University events to mark 200 years since Greek War of independence


The University of Cyprus announced on Thursday a series of events to commemorate 200 years since the 1821 Greek War of Independence.

The programme is scheduled to begin on March 3, with the first instalment ending in May and the second running from October to December.

It will include 19 events incorporating 41 lectures and talks reflecting on 1821, which will be of an academic nature but open to the public.

The events will be approaching the Greek revolution from several perspectives, attempting to decode its character, map out its organisation and execution, and quantify its significance in the historical course of modern Greece.

Invited speakers are academics in the fields of history, law and literature, from universities, research institutes, libraries and museums in Cyprus, Greece, Britain and Canada.

All events and talks will be in Greek.

Events will be held online every Wednesday at 6.30pm, and those interested can sign up for free on Zoom using the following link:

They will also be available to watch on the Youtube channel created by the University especially for the programme.
