On March 9th, 2022, the division of Greek and Latin Language and Literature of the Academy of Athens held the 6th lecture of the second cycle of LOGO-DIMIA, a monthly series of lectures on topics that highlight the “synchronicity” and timelessness of ancient civilization.
The event hosted papers by Emeritus Professor Katerina Synodinou (University of Ioannina) and Associate Professor Stavroula Constantinou (University of Cyprus). The general title of the event was “Women in Ancient Literature and Culture”.
The event, one day after the International Women’s Day (March 8), was dedicated to women around the world, who fought for what some consider “self-evident” or “unnecessary”. The event was honored by the presence and address of the world-renowned biopathologist-hygienist, Professor and academic Antonia Trichopoulou, and the well-known and beloved actress Carmen Rouggeri. The coordinators of the event were Alexandra Rozokoki and Andreas Serafeim, Researchers of the division of Greek and Latin Language and Literature of the Academy of Athens.
