A six-day seminar at the Durrell School of Corfu, Greece, 16-21 May, 2010. The seminar aims to bring together experts in all aspects of the history and cultural of the Ionian Islands in what is, we believe, a unique attempt to take an interdisciplinary overview of the history and culture of this group of islands whose development, at least in medieval and modern times, is quite distinct from that of the rest of Greece. The moderator and keynote speaker is Professor Peter Mackridge, Professor Emeritus in the University of Oxford. Proposals (2 pages maximum) for consideration by the Board with author's CV should be sent to the Academic Director, Anthony Hirst ( and copied to the Durrell School ( no later than 1 February 2010.
