CULTURAL TRANSFER AND ‘NATIONAL CHARACTER’ IN NINETEENTHCENTURY GREEK PERIODICALS

Abstract: 

During the 19th century, periodicals constituted a field of activity vital to the formation of collective memory: an important part of discussions concerning the character of national identity and the self-determination of the newly created Greek state emerged through their pages and the corresponding quests and ideas greatly contributed to the development of modern Greek literature while also marking its relations to the notion of otherness. The strong claim for the formation of a national literature was thus made along with discussions on the influence of received foreign literatures. Cultural interchanges: literary genres, aesthetic and ideological trends.

  1. The first research team aims at the formation of a database common to all three teams and covering not only the published content of the periodicals but also their multiple references to authors, texts, literary genres etc. The team will concentrate on how ideological and literary trends are received and persist or are revived and venture to identify the conditions affecting the formation of different genres. The reception of theatre genres: poetic, prose and music theatre.
  2. The second research team aims at identifying, collecting and evaluating all texts relevant to theatre and drama, including music theatre published in 19th century periodicals. Its objectives also include the study and taxonomy of dramatic genres on the basis of all relevant material as well as the study of processes affecting the reception of foreign drama and the dialogue with antiquity as an ideological and aesthetic model. Cross-cultural relations and transfers: National literature between the foreign and the local.
  3. The third research team aims at identifying and studying theoretical notions and concepts concerning intercultural relations and transfer. It will inquire into the degree to which the 'foreign' constitutes a basic reference for the formation of the notion of a 'national' literature and of its multifaceted identity.
