Modern Greek Myths 1950-1967
Supervisors: Marina Lathouri, Sokratis Georgiadis
Modernity and national identity in post-war Greece are discussed in this research. The thesis focuses on four cases that try to reconcile national stereotypes with modern ideas and reflect the problematic process of absorbing modernity. Hopefully it will contribute to the dissolution of myths and constructs in architectural historiography in Greece and add to recent international scholarship on critical issues of national identity and modernity.
