New book! (Dis)continuities in the High Mountains. Exploring the culture of the mountains

Embark on a journey through the rich tapestry of mountain culture with our newly released book, “(Dis)continuities in the High Mountains. Exploring the culture of the mountains” expertly edited by Dr. Faidon Moudopoulos-Athanasiou. This volume comprises 22 thought-provoking contributions from esteemed researchers, delving into the mountain culture through lenses such as critical studies, architecture, landscape archaeology, ecology, history, folklore, and literature.

The genesis of these insightful contributions lies in the engaging public lectures organized by the editor during the Vovousa Festival in July 2022. Additionally, the book draws from previous projects, including the noteworthy 1st participatory workshop for the reconstruction of an old cobbled pathway in Aristi in 2020. These diverse perspectives converge to offer a comprehensive exploration of the multifaceted aspects of mountain culture.

While the book is undoubtedly a valuable resource for scholars, it is crafted to appeal to informed readers with a keen interest in the cultural heritage and development plans shaping the Greek Mountains.

Published by the Land + Water Civil Non-Profit Organisation, this project is made possible through the generous grant from the Greek Ministry of Culture.
