Title:

European Economic Integration

Scientific Field(s):

978-618-82294-0-2 (html), 978-618-82294-1-9 (pdf), 978-618-82294-2-6 (ePub)

Abstract:



This book investigates the evolution of the integration process of the European Union (EU) under the lenses of economic development. The process of the European Economic Integration is an innovative experiment, unique in its magnitude, breadth and depth. While the number of regional associations has increased immensely in recent decades, the EU remains the union with the largest number of member-states and the most pronounced transfer of powers to supranational institutions. This degree of integration, combined with the relative importance of the continent in global wealth and trade, imparts paramount influence not only for Europe itself but for the whole world at the political, social and economic level. Thus, the study of this evolution is a special challenge both for economists and for European citizens trying to appreciate the extent to which this transfer of power benefits (or not) Europe as a whole, each Member-State separately, third countries and the global economy. The originality of the book lies in its effort to combine three levels of analysis and explore their interaction in real life: ·         The state-of-the-art of the theoretical background of the scientific fields relevant for policies of European competence.

Title:

The inhabitants of Athens, 1900-1960. Demography

Date:

2016 | 254 pages

ISBN:

978-960-466-152-7

DOI:

https://dx.doi.org/10.12681/econ.58.36

Abstract:



This book is a study on the composition, demographic behaviour, and socio-professional structure of the population of Athens during the period 1900–1960. It is a work of primary research and aims to serve as a foundation for further research. It employs an analytical and methodical approach to address shortcomings in the historiography of Greek urban populations. To this end, it utilises the marriage records of the Municipality of Athens for the period 1910–1960, making this the first time that they become the subject of historical study. This study also draws on published sources, particularly the results of censuses in the period 1907–1961, and natural movement of population during the period 1921–1960, as well as N. Igglesis’ Guide to Greece, especially the volumes for 1910 and 1921. The study comprises three distinct chapters. Chapter One deals with the integration of the population of the Municipality of Athens into the broader national framework and into the physical space of the city and its suburbs. During the period studied, the Municipality of Athens underwent significant changes: Its population grew 4.5 times, whilst its land area decreased as a result of dozens of secessions, during the 1920s and 1930s, of localities that broke off to form

Title:

Markets and Politics Private Interests and Public Authority (18th-20th centuries)

Publisher:

Date:

2016 | 372 pages

ISBN:

978-960-9439-46-6

Abstract:



The collective e-volume Markets and Politics. Private interests and public authority (18th-20th centuries), edited by Christina Agriantoni, Maria Christina Chatziioannou and Leda Papastefanaki, includes a selection of papers presented at the 2nd International Economic and Social History Conference, that was co-organized by the Greek Economic History Association and the Department of History, Archaeology and Social Anthropology of the University of Thessaly (Volos, 10-12 February 2012). The volume explores the multiple aspects of the relationship between economy and politics from a historical perspective and promotes the connection, or reconnection, of Economic and Political History. This is a topical issue as there is a widespread impression that the forces and compulsions of the market economy define political choices. At different times and in different regimes and countries, from the 18th to the 20th century, the authors investigate the mechanisms that shape the relations between economy and politics: theories and institutions that define the cultural and regulatory framework of the economy, state interventions in markets, contacts and affinities developed between politicians and businessmen, the impact of societal challenges on economy and politics. The papers contribute to a better understanding of complex historical processes that either balance or subvert the relations between political and economic power.

Title:

Online Pasts: Image, Technology and Historical Culture in Contemporary Greece (1994-2005)

Author(s):

Date:

2015 | 182 pages

ISBN:

978-618-82303-0-9

DOI:

10.12681/historein.5.11

Abstract:



This is a book on contemporary Greek historical culture. It is based on research conducted on more than 2.500 personal homepages developed by Greeks during the period 1994-2005. The book deals with these particular webpages as markers of a critical process, concerning ‘mutations’ in Greek historical consciousness. More specifically, Greek personal homepages are conceived as an empirical ground for exploring the overall ways Greek society confirmed, rearranged or even deconstructed pre-existing historical narratives. Focusing mainly on the visual structure of the personal homepages, the book examines how specific linear conceptualizations of historical time (continuity, progress and irreversibility) were transformed in order to be reproduced within the

Title:

Future History: How the twentieth century imagined an “other world”

Author(s):

Scientific Field(s):

Date:

2017 | 217 pages

ISBN:

978-618-82303-2-3

Abstract:



I was drawn to this study by questions that concern the future in history. What was the role that the “future” played in critical thought, fantasy and human historical experiences during the first half of the twentieth century? Can we reconstruct the history of the future in past tense? Can we use the methods of cultural history in order to trace the emergence of people’s ideas, images and emotions about the future in their intellectual and historical contexts? How did the “future” change in the past and how these transformations relate to overall social, political and cultural developments? And vice versa, what was the impact of the transformations of the “future” in historical becomings? The book traces the “future” in related literature and in diverse fields of cultural production and demonstrates on the one hand the intensification of engagements with the “future” in the work of intellectuals, cultural producers and scientists during the first half of the twentieth century and on the other the centrality of the notions of globality and cosmos in the formation of futurist imaginary during the same period.

Title:

Historein

Historein is an international, peer-reviewed, open-access electronic journal published annually by the Cultural and Intellectual History Society (Athens). It is both historical and interdisciplinary in its perspective. It is thus situated within a scholarly “free trade" zone that encourages the interaction between history, philosophy, social anthropology, sociology, gender and labour studies, epistemology, literary and cultural studies. Its main aim is to promote the study of themes and phenomena that cannot be approached solely from within one discipline. Historein strongly supports approaches that tend to erase the distance between theory and research by making self-reflection a vital element of historical scholarship at all levels and stages. At the centre of its interest are questions concerning the production of knowledge about the past, the historicity of interpretative and argumentative strategies, and the politics of disciplinarity. Within this framework, Historein also aims at the enrichment of the evolving debates around class, gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, religion and generation, and the impact respective conceptualisations have had on the
