Due to the pandemic, the “Numismatic meetings” traditionally held in Athens, in 2020/21 will become an online event enabling a much larger audience to attend. The Numismatic meetings are a joint organization of the Belgian School at Athens (EBSA), the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (EKPA), the National Hellenic Research Foundation (EIE-IIE/TEPA), the French School at Athens (EFA), the German Archaeological Institute at Athens (DAI).
The aim of the seminar is to demonstrate the strength of the numismatic research in Greece by pointing out the links and interactions of the discipline with history and archaeology. Every source and method related to numismatics will keep the attention of the seminar: technical aspects, metrology, iconography, monetary, financial and economic history.
This year’s numismatic seminar becomes a webinar due to the actual sanitary situation in Greece and around the world. Nothing changes in the quality of the program and the dynamics of discussions and interactions after every lecture. The real change, an improvement in many respects, is that the lectures will be made available to a much larger audience around the world. A link will be made available a week before each Webinar on the websites and social networks of the Institutions involved in the organization of the S(W)e(b)minar. The link will guide the participants through a simple registration process and involves no particular technical skills for connecting. All participants will be “active panelists”, meaning that they will be able to ask questions and comment during the discussion after each lecture. The first lecture, by Dr Lucia Carbone (ANS), starts already on Monday, November 23rd.
The Greek and overseas scholars are invited to deliver a one-hour conference presenting the “what’s new” in numismatics, their latest studies and important new discoveries in the field. A session of discussion and questions will follow the conference.
The hosting of the Webinar as well as the technical support are offered by the National Hellenic Research Foundation. The Webinars, following the tradition of the previous years, are taking place on a Monday, on a monthly basis and start at 6 pm (Athens’ EET time).
Here you can find the programme of the webinars.
