29-30 November and 1 December 2019
School in the Democracy, Democracy in the School

The three Departments of Education of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences of the University of Thessaly in collaboration with the Pedagogical Society of Greece  organize the 16 International Conference of Pedagogical Society of Greece   in Volos. The conference is held from 29 to 30 November and on 1 December 2019.

The theme of the conference is: "School in democracy, democracy in school". Starting from the concept of democracy as a way of life and not simply as a system of governance and given the scientific dialogue developed internationally for the cultivation of students' political and democratic consciousness, the provision of equal opportunities to all in education, the participation of all involved in school education and thus the redefinition of a democratic school in modern society, this issue was decided jointly with members of the Organizing Committee of the Conference which serve as faculty members at three educational departments of the University of Thessaly.


Transatlantic commercial networks and the palimpsest of Greek migration in America during the 19th c.

On Wednesday, 13/11/2019, at 18:30, in the Multimedia room of the Department of History, Archaeology and Social Anthropology, on the 6th floor.

The core of the historical narrative of the Greek diaspora in the New World centers around the bulk of the Greek migratory flows to America, which emerged in the early 20th century, casting in the historical margins several Greeks, who sometimes in small communities or individually seem to exploit the transatlantic trade networks and prosper throughout the 19th century. The present lecture discusses and attempts to map this early history of the Greek Diaspora in America and proposes an evolutionary narrative model to interpret the gradual coexistence of the 19th century Greek Diaspora with the first immigrants of the 20th century. This is mainly achieved by the emblematic personality and effective contribution of a leading figure in each of these first Greek communities of the New World, the 'Homo Auctor'.
