Pierre Sintès

Liverpool University Press

Pierre Sintès begins by presenting the main themes and bibliography that were instrumental in his understanding of the transformations that have taken place in Greek society and the theoretical tools and themes provided by the social sciences in order to address them, starting with the study of international migration in Greece and leading to a discussion of proposals put forward in Maria Todorova’s work, Imagining the Balkans (2009) inspired by Edward Saïd’s analysis of Orientalism. These ideas are challenged as they potentially disregard the internal power relationships within societies in the region, as well as the economic and political imperatives that govern their position in Europe, acting as a barrier to effective thought processes. Sintès will focus on the geopolitical upheavals of the 1990s, international migrations and domestic mobility including the multiple perspectives of migration in the Balkans and the analysis of locality as an indicator of globalisation, all within the context of new fields of research.

Keywords:   Maria Todorova, Imagining the Balkans, Geopolitical upheaval, Balkans, Migration, Locality, Domestic mobility
