British School of Athens is pleased to invite all friends of history to the BSA Friends’ Lecture by Professor John Bennet (University Sheffield).
You can attend either in-person in London (Room G35, Senate House, Malet Street, London, WC1E 7HU) or online via Zoom webinar. The lecture will take place on 16 January, 17:00 (UK) / 19:00 (GR).
Professor Bennet himself states on the topic of his speech: “The world of Neopalatial Crete was visually rich; it was also a literate world. Yet these two categories, as we define them, never combine in the same field. In this talk, I explore this apparent anomaly and suggest how we might explain it. Any interpretation needs to take account of the specific historical context and so might challenge our modern conceptions of the role of writing and its relation to visual imagery.”
Please register here to attend in-person in London (Room G35, Senate House) or online via Zoom webinar.
