Learning Outcomes
On successfully finishing this course students will know the basic conceptualisations of the essentially contested concept of ideology, and why this concept is necessary for understanding our world. Also, the successive appearence at about the time of the French Revolution of the three fundamental ideologies of our time -conservatism, liberalism, and radicalism- and their constitutive elements. The characteristics of the Ottoman social formation and the ruptures in the history of the Near East connected to the Greek-speaking Balkan Enlightenment. The main aspects of the social history of the Greek kingdom in the nineteenth century, the heritage of the Orthodox Counter-Enlightenment, as well as the reasons for which nationalism, liberalism, and feminism, but not socialism, spread in the Hellenic culture. Finally we will discuss the work and the reception of important public intellectuals such as Iossipos Moisiodax, Adamantios Coray and Rigas Feraios, Constantine and Demetrio Paparrigopoulos, Calliroe Parren and the women editors of The Ladies’ Journal published in Athens, Georghios Scliros and Ion Dragoumis.
