Research project: Archaeology and national imagination in Greece

Currently Active: 
Yes

This long-term project investigates the meaning and role of antiquities and of archaeological practice for modern Greek society.

What part do they play for ordinary people in modern Greece?
The role and meaning of antiquities

In addition to the role of institutions, the state and the intellectuals, it examines the appropriations and the uses of the past and of antiquities by ordinary people.

At the same time, it contributes to the debates on the politics of the past, on archaeology and nationalism, and on the politics of identity and heritage more broadly, by using Greece as a case study.
