The BSA offers its warmest congratulations to Prof Catherine Morgan, OBE, former Director, who was elected a Fellow at the British Academy's recent AGM
Thursday, 28th July 2016 in the Fitch Laboratory, British School at Athens.
Organiser: Dr David Lewis, University of Edinburgh (in collaboration with the British School at Athens and the Leverhulme Trust).
The Workshop is free, but attendees must register their intention to attend with David Lewis () so that sufficient seats, handouts, etc. can be ensured.
The British School at Athens is seeking to appoint an Honorary Treasurer (start date by agreement) in succession to Dr Carol Bell, who will become the next Chairman of the School. This pro bono position, based in the UK, will be attractive to finance professionals with an interest in Greece who may be looking for a board-level position at a distinguished educational charity as part of a non-executive portfolio, or may be planning some other change to their pattern of activity.
The BSA has been active in Greece for 130 years and values greatly the hospitality we have received as well as the collaborations, partnerships and friendships we have formed. The outcome of the recent UK referendum on membership of the EU does nothing to diminish the BSA's commitment to its activities in Greece; indeed, we remain focused on developing their range and depth in the future.
The BSA is pleased to announce publication of a special issue of Visual Anthropology Review edited by Kostis Kalantzis on the visual culture of the 'Greek crisis'. The publication draws on a workshop Kostis organized at the BSA in December 2013 entitled “Imagi(ni)ng ‘Crisis’: Materialities of Seeing and Representing in the Greek Critical Conjuncture”.
The papers can be accessed on-line, subject to the usual restrictions, at:
Seventy years ago the BSA was given a collection of R.A.F. aerial reconnaissance photographs of Greece taken during the Second World War between 1943-45. In 1953 an index album to this collection was created by John and Sheila Boardman.
The John Pendlebury Family Papers, which cover the period from 1913 to 1964, document the life of archaeologist and WWII hero John Pendlebury from his early years as a schoolboy in England through his career as an innovative archaeologist in the Mediterranean.
