Lecture 5 - The 'other' in the development of the history of the Greek State
Time & Location
About the Event
Prior to the creation of the Kingdom of Greece, the Hellenic world in the Eastern Mediterranean was comprised of many centres and peripheries. Unlike today, Athens was not the major centre of Hellenism. What was the impact of the ‘Revolution of 1821’ on those many centres of Hellenism that eventually remained outside the final borders of the Greek State? Were these ‘other’ Hellenes still part of a lost homeland or simply peripheries in post Ottoman states? At the same time, the presentation examines those ‘others’, who due to their language, culture, regional difference, were incorporated within the Greek State but for various reasons felt detached from the central Greek State. Were and are these Greek citizens ‘ethnic’ cohorts or linguistic and religious entities? This presentation examines the ‘Slavophones’ of northern Greece and Australia as a case study.
