SNF Dialogues: History Will Show

ATHENS – Anxiety and fear, polarization and doubt. As 2021 draws to a close, journalist and SNF Dialogues Executive Director Anna-Kynthia Bousdoukou meets with Maria Efthymiou, Professor of History and Archaeology at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA) for a discussion about the past and future of a society in transition globally.

A pandemic that caused societies around the world to lose their footing—and the modicum of comfort offered by looking at current events in context of the fullness of a history that’s always rhyming— will be the focus of the SNF Dialogues discussion held on Wednesday, December 15 at 18:30 (EET) at snfdialogues.org. How can familiarity with history help us interpret the present, move away from polarizing and divisive language, and better manage the opportunity and responsibility of our own freedom?
