The Journal of Greek Media & Culture is an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal that aims to provide a platform for debate and exploration of a wide range of manifestations of media and culture in and about Greece. The journal adopts a broad and inclusive approach to media and culture with reference to film, photography, literature, the visual arts, music, theatre, performance, as well as all forms of electronic media and expressions of popular culture. While providing a forum for the close analysis of cultural formations specific to Greece, JGMC aims to engage with broader methodological and theoretical debates, and situate the Greek case in global, diasporic and transnational contexts. The journal aims to set the foundations for a sustained and serious engagement with Greek culture and media that will not only enlighten particular manifestations, but will have methodological relevance and implications that extend beyond its specific field of study. Greek culture can thus become a ‘limit case' that tests the value and rigour of critical positions in the debate around Europe's cultural unity and diversity, and instigates important theoretical and methodological enquiries around media and cultural exchange and interaction.

‘1821’: Mediations, Receptions, Archives



CALL FOR PAPERS:

‘1821’: Mediations, Receptions, Archives

A Special Issue of the Journal of Greek Media and Culture, edited by Vassiliki Kolocotroni and Eleni Papargyriou

 

The bicentenary of the declaration of the Greek War of Independence in 2021 will no doubt be celebrated as a foundational moment in Greece, where it is often referred to as ‘1821’ or simply ‘21’. The special issue of the Journal of Greek Media and Culture to be published in 2021 will mark this bicentenary by considering receptions of ‘1821’ in the arts and media, its ritualization and memorialization  in a range of contexts, such as vernacular perceptions, diasporic communities, official and unofficial archives and pedagogies, Philhellenisms of the past and present, representations in Ottoman and contemporary Turkish contexts, as well as the lore and lure of ‘1821’ as a revolutionary event. References to the Greek ‘1821’ as a singular, formative ‘event’ invoke the elaboration of the term by philosophers and political theorists  ( Badiou,  Deleuze, Negri), and the longstanding debates on revolution and subject and nation formation. This special issue welcomes new interventions to such debates in the context of ‘1821’  and asks:  How has ‘1821’ and its legacy been constructed and mediated at different moments? How is it deployed today in public discourse, national historiography, the arts and popular culture? Is the meaning of ‘1821’ as a point of origin finally fixed or still fluid?  Is ‘1821’ not a single event, but many? A sum of its mediations and representations?

 

To address some of these questions and raise others, we invite essays of 6000-8000 words (excl. bibliography) on related topics which may include the following:

 

1821 in contemporary Greek arts, media and literature

1821 and Philhellenic representations in popular arts, media and literature

1821 in Turkish arts, media and literature

1821 and the Greek diaspora

1821 at school

1821 and memory construction

Marches, national celebrations and pageantry

Local and unofficial 1821s

The long 1821

Memorials and statues

Archives and collections

Tourism and the Revolution

 

Please send abstracts of approx. 350 words to Vassiliki Kolocotroni (Vassiliki.Kolocotroni@glasgow.ac.uk) and Eleni Papargyriou (epapargy@upatras.gr) by 31 January 2020. Notifications of acceptance will be sent by the end of February 2020. Complete essays will be due by 30 June 2020.
