Olympic Games - History and Symbolism

Date: 07 Jun 2024, 6:00pm - 7:30pm GMT London, Lisbon

In collaboration with Lancaster university, we are pleased to announce three talks by Cyrille Rollet about fascinating aspects of the Olympic Games.

Through an overview of the history of the Olympic Games, from their origins to the status they hold today, Cyrille Rollet paints a picture of their evolution and the values they convey. He describes the cultural significance of iconic symbols such as the Olympic torch, the mascots, the Olympic rings and the architecture of the stadiums and the role they play in showcasing host cities with identifiable logos and posters.
