History of Economic Thought

Nicholas Theocarakis - Undergraduate - (A+)
Department of Economics, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens

This course is an introduction to the history of economic thought. Students should be able to understand how economic theory has been developed. The approach taken is both historical and analytical. The evolution of economic thought is presented as a series of changes in the perception of the nature of socioeconomic process. These changes in the “vision” [in the Schumpeterian sense] of the dominant version of the theory entail each time the construction of new analytical concepts and categories and a new mode of their interaction. The course stresses the historical character of economic theories and the way in which actual socioeconomic phenomena affect the development of economic theory. At the same time the usefulness of different theoretical currents is being discussed, especially in relation to their ability to address the issues of the theory of value and distribution and of contemporary problems, such as unemployment and inequality. Special attention is given to the development of mainstream neoclassical economic theory in order to comprehend and view critically the economic theory that is currently being taught so that it will be seen not as an eternal truth, but as a episode in the history of economic thought.

Postwar American Avant-Garde Art (Μεταπολεμική Αμερικανική Πρωτοπορία)

Stamatina Dimakopoulou - Undergraduate - (A-)
Faculty of English Language and Literature, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens

Much experimental and avant-garde art in the US from the late 1950s onwards emerged against the backdrop of an intense questioning of the modernist canon, and responded to wider historical shifts that involved the dissolution, and the redefinition of boundaries in diverse and interconnected areas of cultural and social life. The course maps important strands in the post-WWII avant-garde from the late 1950s to the present day. The reaction against Abstract Expressionism, the emergence of happenings in the late 1950s, will constitute the point of departure for an examination of the work of artists who experimented with diverse forms, practices, and media, moved beyond traditional genres, and challenged the boundaries, and the institutions that had defined the production of art. We will work with a variety of sources and documents, including poems, paintings, films, performances, videos, and artists’ writings. Throughout the course, we will be establishing connections between artistic movements and developments in postwar American poetry. Teaching consists in lectures, as well as seminar activities and discussions developing connections across different themes and artistic forms. Course material and bibliography can be accessed online on the e-class site. Depending on attendance and participation, additional seminar sessions may be organised during term-time.

Ideology in children’s literature

Angela Yannicopoulou - Undergraduate - (A-)
Early Childhood Education, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens

Since children’s literature is traditionally connecting with a moralizing tendency, and didacticism has treated children’s book as another means of education, ideology has become a paramount factor resulting eventually in a evaluation of children’s books not as an aesthetic product but on the grounds of their ideological messages. Since no book, regardless of his/her author’s intentions, is ideologically neutral –at least a prevailing pathetic ideology is inscribed in it– reading between the lines becomes a significant feature for the critical reader. During the course the students study a great number of children’s books focusing of narrative techniques responsible for the book’s ideology both in written text, illustration and paratext. In addition discussion explores values taught through children’s books that different in time, genre, writer, origin and artistic qualities.
