“One Thousand Pieces of Eyes”: A Few Notes on Antonín Salač’s 1920–1921 Trip to Greece
Languages of publication
The following paper considers the Czech classical scholar Antonin Salač’s (1885–1960) abortive attempts to network with Greek people and institutions during his first trip to Greece, in 1920–1921. As a scholar from Czechoslovakia, a new country lacking both funding and geopolitical clout, Salač leveraged a wide range of – ultimately, unsuccessful – strategies to create the connections that might support future research in Greece. This paper broadens our conceptions of how classical studies “works”, beyond the success stories of wealthy and powerful states.
