1.Cover: Imagination and <i>Logos</i>: Essays on C. P. Cavafy

Imagination and Logos: Essays on C. P. Cavafy

Roilos, Panagiotis

This book explores diverse but complementary interdisciplinary approaches to the poetics, intertexts, and influence of the work of C. P. Cavafy. Contributors include Eve Sedgwick, Helen Vendler, Dimitrios Yatromanolakis, Richard Dellamora, Mark Doty, James Faubion, and Diana Haas.

2.Cover: The Shackles of Modernity: Women, Property, and the Transition from the Ottoman Empire to the Greek State, 1750–1850

The Shackles of Modernity: Women, Property, and the Transition from the Ottoman Empire to the Greek State, 1750–1850

Doxiadis, Evdoxios

This book explores the relationship between women and property in the Greek lands and their broader social position between 1750 and 1850. Doxiadis shows that modernization proved to be an oppressive force for Greek women—though in a much more clandestine fashion than perhaps expected in other European states.

3.Cover: Music and Cultural Politics in Greek and Chinese Societies, Volume 1: Greek Antiquity

Music and Cultural Politics in Greek and Chinese Societies, Volume 1: Greek Antiquity

Yatromanolakis, Dimitrios

Music and Cultural Politics in Greek and Chinese Societies, Volume 1: Greek Antiquity is the first part of a three-volume set focused on the intriguing interaction between music and song-making and practices of cultural politics. Volume I investigates major aspects of this intricate sociocultural phenomenon exclusively in ancient Greek societies.

5.Cover: Greek Mythologies: Antiquity and Surrealism

Greek Mythologies: Antiquity and Surrealism

Yatromanolakis, Dimitrios

Yatromanolakis examines the complex, at times contradictory, responses to ancient Greece in Greek and broader Western European modernism. Exploring the dynamics of ruination and the reconfiguration of fundamental icons of ancient mythology in surrealism, the author shows that Greek antiquity was an integral constituent of avant-garde myth-making.

6.Cover: Counter-Diaspora: The Greek Second Generation Returns “Home”

Counter-Diaspora: The Greek Second Generation Returns “Home”

Christou, Anastasia
King, Russell

Focusing on the return of the diasporic second generation to Greece, primarily in the first decade of the twenty-first century, Counter-Diaspora examines migration experiences of Greek-Americans and Greek-Germans growing up in the Greek diasporic setting, motivations for the counter-diasporic return, and evolving notions of the “homeland.”
