Depending on where you stand, Greece is an innovative country that has overcome multiple disasters or a living catastrophe. A little more than a decade ago, people said of the Athens 2004 Olympics: “The Olympics came home and Greece showed the world the great things Greeks can do.” Today the word "crisis" goes hand and hand with "Greek" in public perceptions. What is Greece's story, and what explains the love-hate relationship between Greece and the West?

This class surveys the idea and presence of the “Greek” in modern history with reference to the Modern Greek state since 1821 and an emphasis on youth culture in the recent past and present. Sources are stories, novels, ethnographic accounts, films, songs, photographs, poems, spectacles, websites, blogs, newspapers, etc.
