The course introduces students to the history of Modern Greece and to a comparative and critical discussion of all those aspects considered to be part of the so-called “Modern Greek culture.” The course interrogates both “culture” and “Greekness” as monolithic, bounded, and static entities. Students will explore the diversity and complexity of Modern Greece and Modern Greek identities through art, literature, film, ethnography, food, music, religious practices, traditions and customs and through their direct and personal interactions with communities and people from Greece and the US Greek diaspora.
