CYCLE OF RESEARCH SEMINARS OF THE CAVAFY ARCHIVE
CYCLE OF RESEARCH SEMINARS OF THE CAVAFY ARCHIVE

The first cycle of research seminars of the Cavafy Archive begins in 2016. Its aim is to work in parallel with projects and research of the Cavafy Archive for the following years. Leading researchers and academics share with the public their research on the Alexandrian poet. 


The seminars cycle is put together by a research team from the universities of Ioannina, Athens, and Oxford, and the Cavafy Archive. Their aim is to become an open platform, where new research on the Alexandrian poet is presented. They also aim to study and discuss archival material connected with his work. Each presentation will be followed by extensive discussion and analysis by seminar participants.
