This volume looks at the definitions of Hellenism and explores questions of Greek ethnicity from the Classical world, through the Byzantine and Ottoman empires and the birth of the Greek state, up into the present. It brings together specialists from the fields of history, anthropology, cultural and literary studies to provide a multidisciplinary approach to the subject. The introduction and afterword constructively contextualize this dialogue on Hellenism, explore its potential for the reader, and map future research directions.
