Decolonizing Hellas: hybrid nomadic conference

Αφίσα του συμποσίου
WELCOME to our first international hybrid nomadic conference:


Decolonizing Hellas:

Imperial Past, Contested Presents, Emancipated Future 1821-2021.

November 4-7, 2021

Athens (PLYFA Industrial Park, Koritsas 39, Votanikos) & online


About a year ago, the then-upcoming bicentennial of the Greek Revolution inspired us to reflect on the history of the Greek nation-state, its foundational ideas and its relations to European colonialism, colonial practices, and ideas.


We initially considered the organization of a few-days-long symposium. We soon realized that the matter needed longer, and more systematic engagement and we ended up establishing Dëcoloиıze Hellάş, an initiative designed on the border of academic knowledge and social movements, which aspires to contribute to the global decolonize movement.
Our first international conference, taking place at String Theory, Koritsas 39 at Votanikos in Athens and online, is by now only one of the many events we have already organized and plan for the near future.


Decolonizing Hellas: Imperial Past, Contested Presents, Emancipated Future 1821-2021 brings together activists, artists, journalists and scholars to reflect on colonial museum practices, the relations between race, colonialism and state building, political identity-building processes, the de-colonization of Cyprus, the relationship between colonialism and capitalism at sea and maritime cosmopolitanism, epistemicide and cosmopolitics, decolonial feminist methodologies, among many other topics.


Through various ways – panels, dialogues and interviews, workshops, assemblies, walking anti-tours, artistic events – we aspire to engage with a broad audience and reflect on our imperial largely silenced pasts, our troubled times marked by capitalist exploitation, racial and gender violence, xenophobia and white supremacy nostalgia and open pathways to more inhabitable and inclusive futures.
