  • Borders, Belonging, and Refugee Memory since the Greco-Turkish War and
           Population Exchange

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Like a bolt of lightning the local Greek officials have dropped in unannounced, just as the refugees are finishing their morning chores. As far as the refugees can follow, the Greeks are telling them: you’re going to be deported tomorrow. One day’s notice. It’s early spring, the world is waking up from winter, and amidst it all there seems to be no place to make room for this injustice.The scene plays out again and again in the coming days and months, with a shifting cast of refugees by the thousands—refugees twice over, in fact, seeing as it was just a year or two since they crossed from Turkey into Greece, and now it looks as though they’ll be uprooted and deported once again. Speaking before his European peers ... Read More

  • Rethinking the Greco-Turkish Population Exchange in the Civilizationist
           Present

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In anticipation of the centennial of the 1923 Greco-Turkish exchange, commemorative events and narratives of remembrance have started circulating in the public domain. As part of these initiatives, a number of cultural exhibits have been organized. Likewise, academic works have addressed various aspects of the exchange, its afterlives, and its legacies—as exemplified by the present special issue and this article.1 In these venues, the exchange itself appears to be revisited predominantly through the national histories of Greece and Turkey. This may not be surprising, given the dramatic impact of the 1923 Greco-Turkish exchange on the demographic redistribution of the two countries. As is well known today, the 1923 ... Read More

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This paper explores the interactions among the multiple actors implicated in the resettlement of over one million refugees who arrived in Greece after the defeat of the Greek army in Asia Minor in 1922. It seeks to illuminate how older and newer transnational ideas and practices, as well as governance powers beyond the Greek state, interacted with the decision-making centers within Greece to implement a refugee resettlement project. It examines how developments in concepts and practices of sovereignty in the longue durée intersected with ruptures and contingencies which came about in the first years following the Great War and the Russian Revolution, when the League of Nations was created, the Population Exchange ...

  • Evolving Moral Economies of Vulnerability in the Aegean Borderscape

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This article interlaces two migratory events that have marked Greece’s modern history—namely the Population Exchange of 1923 and the more recent so-called refugee crisis of 2015—in order to underscore the centrality of the notion of vulnerability in Greece’s contemporary refugee reception policies. During the interwar years, over three hundred thousand arrived on the island of Lesbos from the communities on the coast of Asia Minor and nearly one and a half million refugees in total were resettled from Turkey into Greece. In 2015, over eight hundred thousand refugees, (initially from Syria, Afghanistan, and Iraq)1 crossed the Aegean Sea, charting their journeys further into Europe through the Balkan corridor. The ...

      Abstract: Everyone staying at the refugee reception center has two stories—the real one and the one for the record.Why do some unauthorized migrants feel compelled to adopt identities and experiences that are not their own' This implicit question is addressed by Larbi Ramdani’s1 2019 memoir ʾAnāshīd al-Milḥ (Anthems of salt), which chronicles the Algerian writer’s day-to-day life as a clandestine migrant in Greece. When he finally arrives on the island of Samos after several unsuccessful attempts to cross from Turkey, he presents himself to the UN refugee agency (UNHCR) as Syrian, hoping to ease his traversal through the processing procedures. Later, he tells a group of Afghan smugglers he is Moroccan to avoid any tensions ... Read More

  • Tracing “Greek” Heritage: Anthropological Insights into Intangible
           Heritages, Collective Memory, and Identity on the Black Sea Littoral

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In 2015, while conducting field research in Trabzon, northeast Turkey, to explore the ways in which certain Turkish-nationalist communities preserve an archaic variety of Greek called Romeyka by its speakers,1 I befriended an ambitious and hardworking local woman who normally resided abroad but was in her ancestral village for her summer break. As we talked about Romeyka and its reverberations in the social and political engagements of local communities in and beyond Trabzon, my middle-aged interlocutor Sunay recounted the story of her uncle-in-law, enişte in Turkish. Apparently, in the 1960s, Sunay’s enişte was a tailor working in Trabzon and decided to move to France for work with a friend of his from Maçka, a ... Read More

  • Pastures of Love, Mountains of Sacrifice: Ιmaginings of Pontic Homelands
           in Parakathi Singing and the Postmemory of Trauma

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: It was late. In the Thessaloniki Pontic Students’ Association about ten people still lingered in the main room. The initially casual gathering had evolved into an all-night session of Pontic dialogical signing: a parakathi or muhabeti. The tablemates—students, professional musicians, and music aficionados—were exchanging rhyming couplets (distichs) in Pontic Greek, sung to music provided by a lyra or kemence.At that point, one of the participating musicians verbally attacked a table-mate.“Fuck off, moron!” he shouted, simultaneously indicating with a large smile that he was joking. The attack concerned a distich that the tablemate had just sung, a lyrical couplet about unrequited romantic love, with which he had ... Read More

      Abstract: The wars that brought about the end of the Ottoman Empire and the emergence of republican Turkey led to the expulsion of millions of people, constituting a major chapter in the history of post-imperial ethnic unmixing. One of the most sizeable displacements was imposed by the 1923 compulsory Population Exchange between Greece and Turkey, according to which Greek Orthodox Christians were displaced from Anatolia and Eastern Thrace to the Kingdom of Greece while Muslims moved in the opposite direction.1 As the property question was not resolved in Lausanne, many of the displaced harbored hopes of returning to their homes; however, the Greek-Turkish Friendship Treaty of 1929–1930 mutually cancelled property claims and ...

      Abstract: A century ago, after the end of the Greco-Turkish War in 1922 and the compulsory exchange of populations in 1923, Greece experienced the arrival of about 1.2 million refugees. Specifically, under the Lausanne Convention of 30 January 1923, Greece and Turkey agreed on the population transfer of their respective religious minorities: Greek Orthodox Turkish nationals living in Turkish territory and Muslim Greek nationals living in Greek territory. The Greek inhabitants of Istanbul and the islands of Imbros and Tenedos, as well as the Muslims of western Thrace, were exempted from the exchange. However, in the Cold War period, between 1955 and 1964–1965, persecutions of the Greek Orthodox population of Istanbul led to ... Read More

      Abstract: Anniversaries are good times to think about history. The centenaries of World War I and the Russian Revolution, for example, have inspired new approaches and interpretations that sharpen our understanding of these momentous events, their origins, and their consequences. With regard to the bicentenary of the Greek Revolution, the books under review are prime specimens from an early harvest: an authoritative survey and a cutting-edge compendium, both illuminate the saga of 1821 and integrate the Greek question more fully into the mainstream of modern European history.In terms of politics, the evolution of modern Greece resembles the development of many states that transitioned from multiethnic empires to independent ...

      Abstract: Anniversaries, crises, and other landmark political events often serve as catalysts for societies to revisit their past. The recent economic crisis is a case in point. What went wrong' How did institutions fail to prevent the disaster' These questions featured prominently in street protests and parliamentary debates in all Southern European countries, implicitly calling for a critical reflection on the historical foundations of their democratic regimes. From this vantage point, Rethinking Democratisation in Spain, Greece and Portugal makes an important contribution to the literature by exploring whether—and in what ways—the recent crisis caused a revisiting of the ingrained perception of democratic transitions in ...

           1912–1913 by Peter S. Giakoumis (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Peter S. Giakoumis’s The Forgotten Heroes of the Balkan Wars: Greek-Americans andPhilhellenes, 1912–1913 is a welcome addition to the growing body of scholarship on the history of Greek America. Giakoumis sheds light on the little-known contributions of Greek American soldiers who returned to Greece to fight in the Balkan Wars between 1912 and 1913. At the conclusion of those wars, the Greek kingdom nearly doubled in size and population through the incorporation of Thessaloniki, Macedonia, Epirus, Crete, and the eastern Aegean islands. In his 1964 history The Greeks in the United States, Theodore Saloutos describes the events leading up to the mobilization of approximately 45,000 men who returned to Greece to ... Read More

      Abstract: In 2021 Greece commemorated the 200th anniversary of the beginning of its War of Independence. While the year 1821 is well documented as the start of the war, less well documented is the date that Greece’s independence was finally established. Was it 1827 with the Treaty of London, when the three Great Powers of Great Britain, France, and Russia agreed to mediate and create an autonomous Greece subject to the sultan' Or maybe it was 1829, when Greek rebels fought their last battle against Ottoman troops and the sultan, after losing the Russo-Turkish War of 1828–1829, was finally forced to agree to the terms of the London Protocol and signed the Treaty of Adrianople' Another London Protocol, this one in 1830 ...

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Since Debórah Dwork published her book Children with a Star (1991), the corpus of academic writing on Jewish children and their Holocaust experiences has been constantly growing. Such works have focused predominantly on Poland and Germany, and research on Greece and southeastern Europe has been neglected. In her ambitious book, Pothiti Hantzaroula—an anthropologist by training— aspires to fill this gap by connecting anthropological research on child survivors of the Holocaust with the methods of history, psychology, and sociology.After a robust theoretical summary of Holocaust memory, Hantzaroula switches to historical depictions and quotations from nearly 60 interviews, many conducted as part of a research project ...

           Gail Holst-Warhaft (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In Nisiotika, Gail Holst-Warhaft argues that while the music of the Aegean islands can at first appear lighthearted and carefree, these songs and dances nevertheless embody their own drama and pathos, reflecting as they do on lives lived in relationship to the sea with its adventures, connections, and dangers. Similar in size, scope, and structure to her 1982 book Road to Rembetika—which introduced many scholars and lovers of Greek music to the history, significance, and poignant poetry of the urban popular genre of rembetika music—Nisiotika aims to elucidate what distinguishes the music of the Aegean islands from that of mainland Greece and, indeed, from that of other islands, such as Crete, whose songs are not ...

  • The Cinematic Language of Theo Angelopoulos by Vrasidas Karalis (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Vrasidas Karalis’s monograph The Cinematic Language of Theo Angelopoulos, published by Berghahn in 2021, is an important addition to the scholarly study of Greek film. Firstly, it investigates Theo Angelopoulos’s work in terms of the filmmaker’s biographical context, largely avoiding the established Brechtian methodological framework for discussing his films. Secondly, despite an abundance of journal articles, only a few books exist in the English language that deal with the work of Angelopoulos. Since Andrew Horton’s seminal books The Films of Theo Angelopoulos: A Cinema of Contemplation (1997a) and The Last Modernist: Theo Angelopoulos (1997b), David Bordwell’s Figures Traced in Light: On Cinematic Staging ...

  • The Archeologist and Selected Sea Stories by Andreas Karkavitsas (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The Archeologist and Selected Sea Stories belatedly but brilliantly brings to an English readership long-overlooked works by Andreas Karkavitsas. One of the most prominent authors of Greece’s generation of the 1880s and a practitioner of ethografia, a form of Greek naturalism focused on the rural experience, Karkavitsas was known for his masterful blend of folk and literary traditions, as well as his keen eye for the texture and tenor of the life and vernaculars of the common folk, all set against the backdrop of the turbulent political and social upheaval that caused Greece and the wider Balkan region to be dubbed the “powder keg” of Europe during this period. Coinciding in its release with the bicentennial of the ... Read More

  • The Greek Revolution: A Critical Dictionary ed. by Paschalis M.
           Kitromilides and Constantinos Tsoukalas (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Revolution or war of independence' The question rarely crosses the minds of Greeks when they think of 1821, since people in Greece learn, through both popular culture and schooling, to speak and think of that particular moment in modern Greek history simply as the Greek Revolution. Hence the surprise when a Greek discovers that there is hardly any talk of a Greek revolution outside of Greece, as the term does not appear often in international scholarly output or even during a Google search. In scholarly and lay discourse, “revolution” was reserved for the French, the Russians, or the Americans, leaving Greeks in the cold. A quick look into renowned encyclopedias such as the Britannica attests to this.For historians ... Read More

  • The Greek Fire: American-Ottoman Relations and Democratic Fervor in the
           Age of Revolutions by Maureen Connors Santelli (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The famous Greek leader Petrobeis Mavromihalis, upon the start of the Greek Revolution in the Peloponnese, sent to the Americans a document titled “Declaration to the Americans by the Kalamata Messinian Senate and the Field Marshal Petros Mavromihalis” (March 1821). In the document, the political affinity between Greeks and Americans was stressed. Despite the geographical distance, wrote Mavromihalis, the revolutionaries regarded the Americans as familiar; they regarded them as friends and fellow citizens, philanthropists, brave and with the Bible in hand. With this “Declaration,” Mavromihalis hoped to provoke the philhellenic sentiments of the Americans.Regarding European Philhellenism, most researchers agree that ... Read More
