Furthermore, a 'virtual roundtable' on Modern Greek Studies in the 21st century organised by Kristina Gedgaudaite brings together six more post-graduate and early career researchers who discuss the challenges and opportunities for the discipline. Aside from book reviews, the issue also contains a visual essay by photography researcher Christina Kolaiti, which explores photographic self-representation and psychoanalysis.

Enjoy the issue and best wishes!
