As part of the conference “Modern Greek Studies in the 21st Century: Local Cases, Global Debates,” organized by the network Greek Studies Now at the University of Amsterdam, we are hosting the screening of a collection of short films.
This wonderful selection of films show some of the unseen Greek landscapes and realities. Inviting us to reflect on their beauty and honesty and trying to imagine a different universal future.
MODERN GREEK STUDIES IN THE 21ST CENTURY: LOCAL CASES, GLOBAL DEBATES
This is the second conference organized by the “Greek Studies Now” Cultural Analysis Network. The conference brings together scholars from all career stages whose work is (partly) situated in Modern Greek Studies, with a particular emphasis on graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and early career scholars. It will offer young scholars the opportunity to showcase their work, give and receive feedback, and create networks leading to further collaborations and joint projects.
By inviting speakers situated in Modern Greek studies alongside speakers working (partly) in other fields, we will explore how cases from modern and contemporary Greek culture, literature, politics, and history can be brought to bear on broader theoretical, cultural, social debates. We will ask how Modern Greek studies could be repositioned through an engagement with such global debates and through comparative perspectives.
