Images of Balkans in Modern Greek Literature
We would like to invite you to a new course dedicated to representations of the Balkan Other and the Balkans. Using the theoretical tools of Imagology, the aim is to highlight the stereotypical constructions and the main connotations of the term "Balkans" in 19th and 20th century Modern Greek literature.
