Fustanellas, chlamydes and other stories about the formation of the national past

Date

20 December 2020

Abstract

Vangelis Karamanolakis talks with Christina Koulouri, on the occasion of the publication of her book Fustanellas and chlamydes: Historical memory and national identity, 1821–1930 (Alexandria 2020), for the formation of the national past in the first century of life of the Greek state. Lithographs, paintings, revivals of ancient drama, anniversaries and monuments are the raw material for a discussion about how the modern Greeks illustrated their national past, how they formed their self-image and its paths through time. Highlighting the importance of the 1821 Revolution as a central mnemonic event compared to antiquity or Byzantium, the discussion finally focuses on the celebrations in view of the bicentenary of its inception.
