LIBRARY RESEARCH FELLOW PRESENTATION

"The Book Culture of Greek Americans"

The Tsakopoulos Hellenic Collection invites you to join us for a lecture by 2012-2013 Library Research Fellow
Prof. Maria Kaliambou, Senior Lector in Modern Greek, Yale University.

 

Summary:

"Various kinds of books exist within Greek immigrant communities in America: “high” and “low” editions; books for adults as well as children; books with religious, social, humorous, or functional character, and so on. Also a significant number of serials and periodicals are published in almost every community. This presentation will discuss the crucial role these publications play in the cultural education and self-awareness of immigrants. Research on the book history of Greek Americans can contribute not only to literary studies and book history but also to a better understanding of cultural identity and migration studies."
