Under the supervision of Dr. Şükrü Ilıcak, a large group of researchers leaned over the Ottoman archives, which until now had not been studied. The two-volume edition, which exceeds 1,600 pages, includes 700 documents, transcribed from the ottoman language, translated and fully annotated. These are letters found in the Ayniyat Registers, in the Ottoman Archives of Constantinople, dating from June 1821 to 1826, when the Great Powers begun their official diplomatic intervention to the Greek Revolution. It is a project of international standards, undertaken for the first time by a Greek institution, a fact validated by the collaboration with Brill publishing house.

The publication is in English, honoring both the international impact of the Greek Revolution – it is clear today that we are talking about a pan-European event – as well as the global academic interest in these documents. In addition to new information about the battles and the events of the Greek War of Independence, these documents come to help historians and scholars understand the concept of revolution during the Greek uprising.

The author, Dr. Iris Panayotopoulou, Architect-Town Planner, with respect and love for the island, describes in detail the evolution of Hydra Town, from a mountain enclosed village to a proud state open to the sea and finally to a historic settlement. Her many years of study, solidly documented, presents the natural landscape and its impact on the settlers, the way it spread from the mountain to the beach, recognizes and relates families and homes and investigates the urban structure of the settlement from ancient times to the present. Finally, it deals with the location, identification and connection of each building with the history of the families that inhabited it, citing a number of photographs, old and new. The rich documentation from the archives of IAMY, GAK, EIM, ELIA and not only, makes this project a “source” for future studies that will surely emerge.

Borders, Sovereignty and Stamps. Greece 1830-1947

Author: Konstantinos Tsitselikis

Publisher: Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation, Athens 2021
Editors: Konstantinos Thanasakis, Ioanna Romiou
Language: Greek

Pages: 330

ISBN 978-618-5509-01-9
Price: 22€

The work of Konstantinos Tsitselikis, Professor of International Law at the University of Macedonia, deals with one of the least studied historical issues. From 1830 to 1947, the Greek territory developed rapidly, but without absolute certainties. Usually, the borders of Greece were secured successfully and permanently, but some times, they were drawn occasionally or ineffectively. They have always been associated with the program of national homogenization and national integration, but also with the geostrategic aspirations of the Forces. Occupation, domination, co-ownership, compose the complex shape of the genealogy of a stormy and bloody adventure that runs through the Greek territory before taking the form we know today. The stamp, Greek and foreign, is an indication and means of exercising power, occupation or sovereignty of the territory that became – or did not become – Greek. A strong symbol and message for who exercises political and institutional control over the land, the postage stamp, like the postmark, is associated with every corner of Greek territory once found on one side or the other of the border line.

The authors of the original scientific papers of the volume are: Dr Aliki Asvesta, Dr Elizabeth Key Fowden, Dr H. Sukru Ilicak, Eleni Kanetaki, Prof. Dimitris Karidis, Prof. Yannis Kizis, Dr Elena Korka, Ass.

Five years after the first and permanent exhibition of Dimitris Perdikidis’s (1922 – 1989) artworks at the premises of the Foundation in Piraeus, we have in hand his design notebooks which take us on his creative journey from 1959 to 1967. These notebooks – “A world in itself” – they open and take us to an era of reconstruction for the artist himself, during which he made an abstract work with his own originality and identity. Perdikidis’s designs include a poetic element with special charm, musicality and sensitivity and through them unfolds a grid of expressive ways that announces his later pioneering artistic developments.
