The cultural politics of the Greek crisis

The second workshop of the two-year research network project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council  (UK) on the cultural politics of the Greek crisis will take place at the University of Birmingham on Saturday 23 May 2015.  The objectives of this workshop are:

*       how contemporary Greek literature, performing arts and cinema are responding to the Greek economic crisis;

*       to investigate the extent to which the economic crisis has led to an interrogation of established cultural practices.

*       to study the impact of the economic crisis on cultural institutions, media, museums and publishers, and the proliferation of online cultural journals and dedicated blogs during this period.

*        how modes of intellectual engagement have changed due to the crisis;

*       how notions of cultural purity and perceptions of the ancient past have informed identity claims.
Those who might be interested in contributing to the workshop and the website of the project should get in touch with the principal investigator of the project Professor Dimitris Tziovas, University of Birmingham (d.p.tziovas at bham.ac.uk<mailto:d.p.tziovas at bham.ac.uk>).
