Ionian Khora: Fragility and Resilience of Rural Landscapes in Ionia

Wednes­day, Jan­u­ary 18, 2023

The Swedish In­sti­tute at Athens in­vites you to a lec­ture by As­soc.Prof. Elif Koparal (Mi­mar Sinan Fine Arts Uni­ver­sity), Pro­ject di­rec­tor of Urla-Çeşme Penin­sula Ar­chae­o­log­i­cal Sur­vey Pro­ject (KLASP) and Co-Di­rec­tor of Kla­zom­e­nai Ex­ca­va­tions (Urla-İzmir), en­ti­tled:

“Ion­ian Khora: Fragility and Re­silience of Rural Land­scapes in Io­nia”.


Archaeological practice in Ionia has a long history that mainly focused on the urban
centres and monuments. Within the last three decades, owed to the archaeological
surveys conducted at rural landscapes we have a better understanding of rural lives
and landscapes of Ionia. KLASP is a survey project dedicated to exploring the khorai
around Klazomenai, Teos, Erythrai and Lebedos diachronically. The lecture will
present the results of the KLASP project and a holistic assessment of evidence from
rural territories in Ionia.

The lec­ture takes place on Wednes­day, Jan­u­ary 18, 2023, at 19.00 (Athens) in a hy­brid for­mat with live pres­ence at the Swedish In­sti­tute at Athens, Mit­seon 9, and on­line via Zoom.
