La Trobe to offer course on Transterritorial Hellenism
'Transterritorial Hellenism: A Journey Through Some Sites' will be offered in January at the Greek Centre
In this subject, students have the opportunity to explore issues in the modern construction of ethnonational, civic, multiple and other identities and to examine the evolution of the concept of 'Hellenism' and the diversity of its manifestations in various parts of the modern world, by way of an imaginary journey through the cities of Istanbul, Izmir, Thessaloniki, London, Nicosia, New York and Melbourne.
Students will be able to explore the life of Greeks as Ottoman subjects, students and scholars, victims of genocide, political exiles, guest workers, Europeans, and citizens of multi-cultural states, as well as the impact of the Greek Orthodox Church, Greek irredentism, political conflict and modernisation on Greek identity.
Competing visions of Hellenism that developed in these cities will be juxtaposed with the realities of Greece today.
Cross-institution subject enrolment at La Trobe University for students from other higher education providers is available for this subject.
