Product Description


'How should we study Greece after the Cold War? This question prompts the author to venture in 'discourse-archeology' and excavate a troubled Greek modernity from under the 'crypto-colonial' dirt of the Hellenic canon. Going beyond the insular national perspective and ushering in a paradigmatic shift post-Todorova, this book will render the old Hellenic and Balkan studies narrative 'unreadable.'' - Dušan Bjelić, University of Southern Maine, USA, author of Normalizing the Balkans and co-editor of Balkan As Metaphor

'Interrogating the very category of the Balkans against the conventional bounds of national or regional certainty, Calotychos has produced a groundbreaking analysis that has changed the field virtually overnight. With multi-layered juxtaposition of literary, filmic, geographical, cross-cultural, and cross-genre dimensions, he charts not only the historical gravity of a complex cultural region but the terrain of its uncertain future. A tour de force of scholarship and intellectual daring, this book will be of standard reference for years to come.' - Stathis Gourgouris, Professor of Comparative Literature and Director, Institute for Comparative Literature and Society, Columbia University, USA

'This book is one of the most imaginative and original attempts during the last five years to make a fresh contribution to modern Greek studies. Though the emphasis of the project is on the period after 1989, discussing primarily cultural imperatives which have imposed themselves anew on Greece and the Balkans since that 'historic moment,' the historical context is ever present throughout the author's narrative.' - Theofanis G. Stavrou, Professor of History and Director, Modern Greek Studies, University of Minnesota, USA

'This book delivers a complex, sophisticated, and intriguing narrative on Greece's positionality within and without the Balkans. It does so through a restless search for the cultural forms and texts through which difference is processed or manifested.' - Augusta Dimou, GWZO, Centre for the History and Culture of East Central Europe, University of Leipzig, Germany
