Cultural-Historical Activity Theory Travels to Greece: Actors, Contexts and Politics of Reception and Interpretation

Abstract [en]

This article explores how socio-cultural, cultural-historical and activity theory approaches to education and psychology have traveled to Greece over the last three decades. It explores the history of introducing these approaches in the Greek context while identifying key dimensions of the process, such as: diverse interpretation of original works, key actors in academic teaching and research and linkages with educational policy and activism beyond the university spaces. Greece with its specific history of military dictatorship, constitutional change, varied struggles for democracy within the university, European integration, and current crisis and neoliberal reforms is seen as a sample case; taking this case as a point of departure, the authors develop a meta-theoretical frame on how to discuss the various ways in which socio-cultural-historical approaches have traveled across socio-cultural, historical, institutional, political, regional, and also, increasingly globalized contexts of education.

Abstract [ru]

Статья посвящена анализу того, как идеи социокультурного, культурно-исторического и деятельностного подходов в образовании и психологии распространялись в Греции на протяжении последних 30 лет. Прослеживается история прихода этих идей в Грецию, их преломление в греческом контексте и ключевые факторы этого процесса, как то: широкая интерпретация источников, значимые фигуры в академической среде и науке, взаимосвязь с образовательной политикой и активизмом вне стен университетов. Специфика греческой истории с ее военной диктатурой, конституционными изменениями, борьбой за демократию, европейской интеграцией, новейшим кризисом и неолиберальными реформами — все это становится для авторов отправной точкой для выстраивания метатеоретической концепции, описывающей разнообразные способы, которыми социо-культурно-исторические подходы проникали в социокультурный, исторический, институциональный, политический, региональный и интенсивно глобализирующийся образовательный контексты.
