Professor Emeritus Thanos Veremis to give lecture at The Hellenic Centre

Thanos Veremis
Thanos Veremis, Professor Emeritus of Political History at the University of Athens and founding member of the Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy will be giving a lecture entitled "THE GREEK CRISIS: WHEN THE SEGMENTARY COMMUNITY MEETS WITH POPULISM" at the Great Hall of the Hellenic Centre , on Saturday the 1st of June at 16:30 in the afternoon.

In his talk  Professor Veremis discusses the contours of Greek society from the foundation of the nation state until recently and deals with the reproduction of such pre-modern features based on familism in our present ʽsegmentaryʼ society. Sound political leadership kept this form of society at bay during the 19th and a good part of the 20th centuries. The decaying political caste of the recent decade have unleashed the segmentary society, magnified by populism, a new import in Greece.

Organised by the Society for Modern Greek Studies and the Hellenic Centre.
