By Christy Constantakopoulou

Christy Constantakopoulou examines the heritage of the Aegean islands and altering strategies of insularity, with specific emphasis at the 5th century BC. Islands are a renowned function of the Aegean panorama, and this necessarily created a number of various (and occasionally contradictory) perceptions of insularity in classical Greek inspiration. Geographic research of insularity emphasizes the interaction among island isolation and island interplay, yet the
predominance of islands within the Aegean sea made island isolation nearly most unlikely. particularly, island connectivity used to be a major function of the background of the Aegean and used to be expressed on many degrees. Constantakopoulou investigates island interplay in favourite parts, faith and imperial politics,
examining either the spiritual networks positioned on islands within the historical Greek international and the influence of imperial politics at the Aegean islands through the 5th century.
