International conference

Thursday 10 - Sunday 13 May 2018

Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, The Teloglion Fine Arts Foundation

From Thursday 10 to Sunday 13 May 2018 the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki will hold an international conference marking the 100 years since the end of the First World War. This will take place in Thessaloniki at The Teloglion Fine Arts Foundation, next to the campus of the Aristotle University.

The Aristotle University, King’s College London, the Imperial War Museum and the British School at Athens are all represented on the Organising Committee. The event will be under the auspices of the British Embassy Athens. Our aim is to offer the public of Thessaloniki, especially university students, a conference of a high scholarly level, which will promote the knowledge and sustain the memory of the First World War, a momentous event for the history of Thessaloniki, Macedonia, Greece and indeed all the European countries involved. The emphasis will be on the ‘other’ aspects of the Great War, i.e. political, economic, social and cultural, without neglecting military operations or diplomacy. Parallel events will include an exhibition of documents and photographs organised at the Hellenic Literary and Historical Archive of the Cultural Foundation of the National Bank of Greece.
