Title

Political Identities II: The postwar liberal international order. The case of Hellenism

Date

5 November 2021

Abstract

If during the 19th and the early 20th century Hellenism –this convoluted relationship between Greek antiquity and Western modernity– came to be identified with European liberalism, Christianity and whiteness, during the second half of the 20th century, democracy came to be its main tenet. This panel explores semantic fields and relationships associated with radicalism, totalitarianism, autonomy, and corruption to explain the Greek democratic culture in the context of the American age.
