Abstract
Prof. Kalyvas will discuss the incentives, challenges, dilemmas, and choices of translating abstract arguments into a visual form, using a national history narrative.  The talk draws from his experience in co-authoring the seven-part TV documentary series “Disasters & Triumphs” which was broadcasted on Greek TV channel Skai, in January and February 2022.
