HAC113 Memory and the city II

Professor: Alexandros TENEKETZIS | Course outline [pdf file]

The course examines aspects of urban culture in the Greek world from antiquity to the present day.Developments in the construction and perception of urban space are presented chronologically. The ways, in which human memory conveys the meaning of urban settlements across time, are analyzed. Time and space equally constitute historical experience and therefore memory, which is reflected in oral stories. The course examines the intersection between the study of urban space and oral history,which can offer original forms of urban history. Human testimonies about urban space are analyzed along with the possibilities they offer for conceptualizing the diversity of the local and for highlighting the “multiple cities within the city.”
