Summer reading, 2020

Because of the travel restrictions in place due to COVID-19, the WARP team has found itself with a lot more free time this summer than usual. Many of us are trying to use it as an opportunity to get some additional summer reading done. (I typically bring a lot of books to Greece with me, buy a lot more in the bookstores of Athens and sometimes Argos, but usually I don’t get much reading done).

Some of the team have even started a little reading group to (re-)read some books about Greece. So far, we’ve read Michael Herzfeld’s Anthropology through the Looking Glass: Critical Ethnography in the Margins of Europe (1987) and we’re now reading Tom Gallant’s The Edinburgh History of the Greeks, 1768 to 1913: The Long Nineteenth Century (2015). Also on our list of books to read (we probably won’t get to all of these):

We also have our own personal reading lists, and I thought that I’d compile them here.
