Reconstruction of the Jewish Community of Thessaloniki after WWII (1945-1955). Comparisons with the Rest of Europe

Maria Kavala - Undergraduate - (A+)
Political Sciences, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki

This course aims to explore the ways the once populous and thriving Jewish Community of Thessaloniki was reconstructed (institutions, economy and society) during the first decade (1945 - 1955) after the Second World War and the Nazi occupation. The focus is on the Greek case comparing to Europe and the reconstruction of Jewish communities there. • The debate was launched internationally in the 1980s and after the 1990 political change in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, returned with new data and queries. • The genocide of the Jews and the return of those who survived fit within the broader historical context of the thousands of refugees created by the Second World War and the corresponding problems in societies. Thus Jew’s history becomes part of Europe's history. • In Greek historiography related research and discussion for survivors and the recovery started very recently. The importance lies in the fact that in this way both the genocide of the Jews and the restoration of the minimum rescued part, ceases to be one of the hitherto 'silences' and contribute to shaping a more complete picture of the era. • In this way historical research and collective memory become richer and more open

Language and Society

Periklis Politis - Undergraduate - (A+)
Journalism and Mass Communications, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki

The course applies sociolinguistic approaches to media language. The relationships between language, society and (mass) communication are examined to illustrate how media discourses represent social phenomena (ideologies, practices, attitudes, personal and group identities etc) and in what ways they influence media writing. Topics included are: language and (traditional or new) media, language and the Internet, language and politics, language and ethnicity, language and youth, language and gender, language and class, language and identity. Moreover, special attention is given to Modern Greek diglossia (Katharevousa vs. Dhemotiki), since stylistic variation in the media over the last four decades -at least- can be partly interpreted in the light of the attitudes adopted by journalists and experts towards the ‘high’ and ‘low variety’, the standard (and official) language and the everyday language, which embodies many dialect elements.
