||The collective volume contains papers delivered in 1995 in Oxford at a conference organized by Peter Mackridge. The creating of an ‘indigenous literary tradition’, i.e. of a ‘Greek Macedonian’ one, is at the focus of number of contributions, namely those of Peter Mackridge (“Cultivating New Lands: The Consolidation of Territorial Gains in Greek Macedonia Through Literature, 1912-1940”), Eleni Yannakakis (“Resurrecting Greek Macedonian Culture: Pentzikis’ The Dead Man and the Resurrection”), Aglaia Kehayia-Lipourli (“Creating a Literary Tradition in Salonica: The Magazine Makedonikes Imeres and Alkiviadis Yannopoulos”) and others. The identity value of fine art is analyzed by Anthony Bryer (“The Rise and Fall of the Macedonian School of Byzantine Art (1910-1962)”). The local identities in Greek Macedonia, especially, the fate of the Slavic population, are discussed by John Koliopoulos, Philip Carabott, Jane Cowan, Georgios Agelopoulos, Eftihia Voutira. Anastasia Karakasidou offers a gender perspective on the same issue (“Women of the Family, Women of the Nation: National Enculturation Among Slav-speakers in North-west Greece”). Basil Gounaris presents the Greek historiography dealing with the so-called ‘Struggle for Macedonia’ (Makedonikos Agonas, 1904-1908) while Thanos Veremis studies the political context of the ‘revival’ of the ‘Macedonian question’ in the 1990s. (also relevant to sub-fields 2, 4, 7, 8, 11, 12, 13, 14).
