The Greek Revolution of 1821

We know a lot about Ancient Greece from several millennia ago, but not much at all about the last few centuries. Or did you know that 200 years ago, in 1821, the Greek population embarked on an eight year war path to successfully rid themselves of Ottoman rule? To mark the occasion Jo Gerk will investigate the background, causes, events and outcome of this revolution in a new 2-week short course.

This course will be delivered both face-to-face at WEA Sydney and online via the online platform Zoom simultaneously. Enrolling students need to ensure they have an email, a reliable internet connection, microphone/speakers and access to a tablet, smartphone or computer if they are attending via Zoom or have read the current COVID-19 Safety Guidance that WEA Sydney has put in place before enrolling into the face-to-face class.
