Reading the Greek Crisis

Back to "Fall 2016" courses

This course will offer a comparative approach to the cultural production of contemporary Greece, investigating the “Greek crisis” through literature and film of the past decade, as well as writings drawn from history, anthropology, political science, and economics, contemporary news sources, political and cultural blogs, and even the fast-changing landscape of Athenian graffiti.

Students will face the comparatist’s challenge of encountering not only an unfamiliar literature as it unfolds in a time of crisis, but also an unfamiliar culture, history, and society, mediate not just by linguistic translation but by market forces and media spin.
