The Greek Military Dictatorship: Revisiting a Troubled Past, 1967-1974
Hybrid event - Live and online
The SEESOX event takes place, on the anniversary of the 17th of November 1973 Polytechnic uprising, a big blow to the junta’s dictatorial authority contributing to its discrediting and downfall in July 1974. The panel will reflect on the military regime’s reactionary, ultra-conservative, repressive and pseudo-modernising attitudes and policies towards education, youth and culture, as well as on the long lasting legacies of this disturbing past. Some of these views draw from the recently published volume The Greek Military Dictatorship: Revisiting a troubled Past, 1967-1974 (Berghahn 2021) edited by Anastasakis and Lagos, which contains a novel and well-researched study of the regime’s domestic and foreign affairs, a haunting period in Greece’ s recent history.
