Espace Périple and Modern Studies Hellenic Circle

have the honour to invite you on Wednesday 17 November @18:30 to the lecture of

Petros Markaris
«Astinomiko mithistorima kai koinoniki pragmatikotita» 

(crime novel and social reality)


The conference is organized under the auspices of the General Consulate of Greece in Brussels. A cocktail will be served at the end of the event.


Petros Markaris is one of those writers that somehow manage to try their hand in many different writing fields and succeed. He’s written crime novels, short stories, plays and screenplays (for Theo Angelopoulos among others), and translated the works of Goethe and Brecht from German to Greek, as well as quite a few books from and to Turkish. And he’s created a fictional hero that seems to openly express the thoughts, feelings, and worries of the Greek people about what’s going on around them.

The lecture will be held in greek.
