Dr. Neovi Karakatsanis (IU-South Bend) will be this year’s Erdogan Kumcu Memorial Lecturer. Her lecture is entitled: “Greece in Crisis: The Human and Political Dimensions.”
This presentation will focus on the human and political dimensions of the Greek economic crisis and the international response. It will consider the tremendous human and social costs of the Greek economic depression, the varying responses of the Greek state and Greek political parties, and the controversy surrounding the recent extension of the Greek bailout. An underlying theme will be the extent to which this tremendous upheaval in Greek society and politics can be seen as a truly transformative period in Modern Greek history.
Her lecture followed by Q/A’s is scheduled for Wednesday March 18th at 3:30-4:45 p.m. in Bracken Library BL104. There will be an informal meeting to talk with especially interested students at 2:00-2:45 p.m. in Burkhardt BB101.
