Russian, E. European & Eurasian Center: Speakers

The use of different terms to designate collectively people related to - or considered part of the Greek nation (Romios, Graikos, Ellin) has been one of the very interesting features of modern Greek nation formation since the late 18th century. As such, it was and is still widely discussed in both scholarly literature and in broader circles. On the basis of various case studies from the region of Late Ottoman and autonomous Bulgaria (19th- early 20th c.), Professor Lyberatos will discuss the processes of national politicization, related to the various uses of these terms, and sketch a theoretical and methodological approach to the delicate question of collective identities/ identifications during the transition to the era of modern Balkan nation-states.
