The Cultures Within Ancient Greek Culture: Contact, Conflict, Collaboration
Carol Dougherty, Leslie Kurke
Cambridge University Press, Oct 2, 2003 - History - 289 pages
The Cultures within Ancient Greek Culture challenges the conventional perception of ancient Greece as the paradigm for unified models of culture. It offers an alternative view of archaic and classical Greece, one in which the contact, conflict and collaboration of a variety of "subcultures" combine to comprise what we now understand as "greekness." This volume argues for the recognition and analysis of cultural contact within Greece, focussing on the micromechanics of cultural exchange, the permeability of cultural boundaries, and the significance of Delphi's geographically marginal, yet symbolically central location as an "internal contact zone."
