Shifting Social Imaginaries in the Hellenistic Period

The following book has just been published by Brill and may be of interest to many. Shifting Social Imaginaries in the Hellenistic Period is a collection of essays that explores the "shifting" relationships between east and west in the Hellenistic period and illustrates that these connections or "new spaces" of identity and culture were complex matrices of interaction, often long before the Hellenistic period proper. The volume includes essay by our Research Associates and should help further our understanding of the "fluid dynamics" of the Hellenistic world.

Friendly contacts had already been established in 2010, when the Hon. Consul General Dimitris Azemopoulos had been our guest of honour on occasion of the inauguration of the Institute. This time, Consul Despina Hatzidiakos, Director of Education, and Mr. Spyros Volonakis, Director of Education of the Greek Orthodox Metropolitan Church of Canada, followed our invitation to the University of Waterloo campus.
