2nd series of lectures

For the 2nd year running, the Alpha Bank Historical Archives are hosting the successful series of meetings on the History of the Political Changeover (Metapolitefsi). 

The 1st series of meetings was completed in May 2022. The 12 lectures were delivered in a creative open dialogue environment, fostering audience participation. Our goal is to publish an original collective volume based on these 2 series of lectures, before 2024, which marks 50 years since the Metapolitefsi.

At the beginning of the 1st series, Kostas Kostis, head of the Historical Archives of Alpha Bank and Professor of Economic and Social History at the Department of Economics, University of Athens, noted that the 50 years since the Metapolitefsi “are an opportunity to assess Greece’s achievements, but also its failures in the recent past”.

Watch the 12 lectures delivered during the 1st series.
