The Workshop’s objective of research and scientific activity is the Greek, institutional, linguistic practices throughout the time spectrum of our history, from Antiquity and through Byzantium into modernity, with a special emphasis on the Byzantine period as of decisive importance for the formation of the overall institutional discourse. The term “linguistic practices” refers to the points of coincidence of private wills and public norms and, in a broad sense, refers to the development of an ethos capable of regulating privacy (or private entities? Or private parties?) according to the language and the expression of institutions.

The institutional discourse, thus, appears regulatory of “privacy” and expressional normativity.
The Workshop focuses its research on formal theoretical texts of the relevant tradition but also on informal theoretical evidence such as e.g. legislative initiatives, educational programs, manifestos, autobiographical documents, representations of the everyday practices of institutional discourse, theoretical confessions, visual documentations, etc., on the basis of an analysis that will explore the relation of philosophy and theoretical discourse with specific language practices on the basis of historically located scientific, linguistic and educational manifestations.
