Join experts in an exploration of Thessaloniki's history

Headlining events for the celebration of the centenary of Thessaloniki’s liberation from Ottoman rule, a conference will take place in the northern port city from October 18-21 on the theme “Thessaloniki: A City in Transition 1912-2012.”

The aim of the conference, which will bring together speakers from around the world, is to map contemporary trends in the recording of history and to couple these with related disciplines, such as social anthropology, economics, law, international relations and the arts.

The interdisciplinary character of the conference will be expressed in three thematic units: “In Search of the Identity of Thessaloniki in 1912,” “A City in Transition” and “Charting Thessaloniki’s Future.”

The conference’s lead scientific committee is to comprise Athens University Professor Constantinos Svolopoulos, Thessaloniki University professors Vasilis Gounaris, Ioannis Stefanidis and Dimitris Livanios, as well as the acclaimed British historian and Columbia University Professor Mark Mazower, author of “Salonica City of Ghosts: Christians, Muslims and Jews, 1430-1950,” which was awarded the Duff Cooper Prize.

More than 2,000 academics, historians, researchers and scientists from around the world have already registered to attend the event, while there is an open invitation for proposals to be submitted by 2 p.m. on Friday, June 1.

Summaries of the proposals should not exceed 300 words and can be sent to 2012conference@thessaloniki.gr, according to the guidelines outlines on the website www.thessaloniki2012.gr. For more information, call 2310.260.322.
