Semester 1, 2013  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Anthony Dracopoulos


How did the Greeks deal with their long and varied past? Are they Greeks, Romioi or Hellenes? This unit will critically examine the major perceptions of the Greek cultural identity put forward by Greek intellectuals and artists from the enlightenment to date, placing particular emphasis on views which arose after the formation of the modern Greek nation-state. It will deal with issues of identity, tradition, nation, cultural continuity and discontinuity and it explores their relevance to the Greek Australian experience.
