Markella IliakiDepartment of Theatre Studies
I hold a BA in Classics from the University of Crete ( 2012- 2018) and currently I am an MA Candidate in Theater and Cinema Studies at the UoC ( 2019- today). During my postgraduate studies, I examined and analyzed the revival of ancient drama in modern greek theater, focusing mostly on the plays of Aristophanes, and the directing vision of Karolos Koun. Furthermore, I worked as a postgraduate scholar at the Institute of Mediterranean Studies in Rethymno, collecting and organizing theatrical archiveς from greek newspapers of the early 20th century.(2019-2020) Currently I am completing my thesis with the title "Karolos Koun and the Greek Comedy of 19th century in the Art Theater”.
