Speaker and Talk Summary
Philhellenism and the Counter-Revolution in Europe after 1815.
This presentation deals with conservative responses to Philhellenism across Europe during the Greek revolution of 1821-30. The talk studies the police measures of various European states (Austria, Prussia, France) against the Philhellenes and thus it sheds light upon the origins of transnational policing in modern Europe.
Christos Aliprantis is the Early Career Fellow in Philhellenism 2022-2023. He is a historian of 19th and 20th-century Europe and the Mediterranean. He is an adjunct professor in social sciences at the American College of Thessaloniki and a postdoctoral researcher at Ruhr University, Bochum, Germany. His research interests and publications focus on the history of policing and security as well as migration and nationalism in modern Europe and Greece. See Christos Aliprantis’s bio.
