The Historical Archive of the University of Athens invites you to read about the university. Four monthly online meetings on recent publications concerning universities, their history and their place in today’s world in Greece and internationally.

What do we know about the university and its evolution in the Western world in recent years? How can we understand the present and the future of the university if we do not know its past? How can we understand the proposals for reform of the Greek university if we do not integrate them into the international debate? How much does the debate on higher education make use of an important literature around it, which has been produced in recent years in Greek, either original studies or translations?

The Historical Archive of the University of Athens, wishing to contribute to the debate on the university and to promote the current bibliographical and scientific production on the university institution in Greece and internationally, organizes a cycle of monthly online meetings. In these meetings, books of the current publishing production around higher education will be presented and discussed.

Athens University of Economics and Business. 100 years of History 1920-2020. The study of the course and history of the OPA, as seen through the prism of the complex 20th century. The narration of the history of a higher educational institution cannot but be in conversation with the broader social, political and economic developments. It is an integral part of the public sphere, and is influenced by and also has a significant impact on the course of events themselves. Recording the history of ASOEE, one of the first Greek higher education institutions and the third to be founded, can reveal important aspects of the public, social, political and economic life of the country. It was the first institution of higher education in economic and commercial sciences. Through its presence, the education it provided, its research activity, etc., it has influenced and continues to influence developments in the respective fields.
