Who Are The Greeks? The Evolution of Greek Identity Over The Ages
Academic Responsible:
Dr. Tatiana Tsakiropoulou-Summers, Director, Athens Center for Classical & Byzantine Studies (ACCBS) & Associate Professor, The University of Alabama, USA.
Since their earliest writings, Greeks grappled with the question of identity, aware that the different Greek tribes belonged in a Hellenic ἔθνος (nation) and declaring succinctly to the world that “πᾶς μὴ Ἕλλην βάρβαρος”, every non-Greek is a barbarian. Nevertheless, they were also aware that each Greek tribe’s unique characteristics kept it separate from other Greeks. Throughout their long history, the Greeks struggled to self-define as Hellenes but also link themselves to other nations, in the way the Romans brunched out in the West, creating kindred nations and cognate languages throughout Europe. But for the Greeks, this did not happen. Despite the long-lasting hold and influence their language and culture had in the East, the closest they ever came to it was Percy Shelley’s declaration “We are all Greeks”, acknowledging that Western laws, literature, religion and arts have their roots in Greece. At the same time, Greece being at the crossroads between East and West, with one “leg” in Europe and another in Asia Minor, a historically Greek region, they have oscillated culturally and politically between Eastern and Western leanings, influences and affections, even throughout the Byzantine period and up to the modern age. The struggle seemed to be “settled” when a Greek politician famously declared in 1977, “Ανήκομεν εἰς τήν Δύσιν”, we belong in the West. Yet, as if to prove him wrong, the Greeks have not stopped repeating the self-identification as “ανάδελφον έθνος”, a nation without any kindred races anywhere in the world. Therefore, for this symposium, we are looking for papers that will address the question of Greek identity, ancient and modern, as well as the impact of definitions.
