Greece and Norway: Center, periphery or it’s complicated?
online conference, 11.04.2022
The Research Centre for the Humanities (RCH) and the Norwegian Institute at Athens are organising the conference “Greece and Norway: European center, periphery or it’s complicated?” on April 11th, 2022 from 11.00 to 18.00.
This conference aims to undertake an interdisciplinary critical and comparative line of research on
a) how the two modern nation states can be studied based on the concept of the centre/periphery as a historical, geographical, economic, social and cultural construct;
b) how such an approach could drive to a critical re-examination and re-thinking of this old dichotomy between “center” and “periphery”.
As part of the programme, the participants of the Transmissions sound art residency will present a film screening and discuss about their experience in the project.
The conference will be held online and is open for everyone, just follow the link below:
