Athens Now: Culture and Politics in the Urban SpaceCourse Cancelled

Efthymia Rentzou

Back to "Summer 2018" courses

This seminar explores contemporary Athens and its culture as a response to increasingly complex political and social dynamics, and ultimately as a characteristic example of 21st century urban culture. The financial, political, and social crisis, as well as the refugee crisis, have radically transformed the city and the culture it produces. We will discuss Athens’ contemporary cultural life through specific works in different media, but also through institutions that manage and disseminate culture to audiences, both traditional and new ones emerging from the current sociocultural landscape.
