Pierre Sintès concludes with a discussion about the discourses around identity in relation to the diversity and polyphony of ‘memory’ in Greece. The strengthening of transnational links is enabled by the increase in mobilities and migration on the one hand, and their adaptation to a particular form of consensus concerning minority expression on the other. Such a movement occurs again at the expense of individual memories and their inevitable plurality. Alongside this movement, there is a strengthening of nationalist discourses and results in a paradoxical radicalisation which often contradicts transnational, minority or local narratives through combatting their plurality, leading to a standardisation of discourses and representations that conform to received canons of correct local or minority expression. Sintès’ work explores the unanimity of nationalist parties and minority representation through an analysis of the role of institutions such as the European Union in diluting the complexities and diversity of Greece’s past to render them legitimate items for promotion and development in the cultural economy.
