An online talk by Dr Eleni Papargyriou, Assistant Professor of Modern Greek Literature, Department of Philology, University of Patras

About this Event

This online lecture is part of the series GREEK LANDSCAPES, LANGUAGE & CULTURE organised by the Hellenic Centre and the Greek Language & Culture Lab, University of Patras.

The speaker will discuss the sociopolitical circumstances that led to the Greek economic crisis of 2010 and the major political landmarks during its unfolding in the decade to follow. The talk, through the study of various cultural texts (photographs, blogposts, poetry) will show us how to inquire into modes of representing the crisis in the social and cultural spheres and how to distinguish between its different aspects.
