LIBRARY RESEARCH FELLOW PRESENTATION

“The Greek Genocide: Pontus and Smyrna and the Resettlement of Asia Minor Refugees 1916-1925”

The Tsakopoulos Hellenic Collection invites you to join us for a lecture by 2014-2015 Library Research Fellow
Stavros Stavridis, Historical Consultant and Independent Scholar, Melbourne, Australia.

Summary:

"This talk will investigate the Greek Genocide during the period 1916-25 with emphasis on two geographic regions of Asia Minor: Pontus and Smyrna. These two places contained large Greek populations who lived there for nearly 3000 years with many of them massacred by the Ottoman Government and Turkish nationalists. In the end, many were uprooted never to return to their ancestral homelands. Greece faced a massive influx of refugees in the aftermath of the Greek-Turkish 1919-22 that would require massive international assistance."

Prof. Stavroula (Avra) Xepapadakou, Lecturer, Dept. of Philology, Division of Music and Theatre Studies, University of Crete.

Summary:

"The Demakopoulos music collection is a rich private archive of sheet music, musical scores, albums and vinyl records. Its contents form an extended overview of Modern Greek art and urban-popular music of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. In this presentation we shall examine paradigms from the collection of the most important historical landmarks of Greek musical creation (Ionian Music School, National School, Avant-Garde, Modernism, Urban-popular songs etc) and meet the leading composers, artists and performers (such as Nikolaos Chalikiopoulos Mantzaros, Pavlos Carrer, Spyros Samaras, Manolis Kalomiris, Nikos Skalkotas, Dimitris Mitropoulos, Maria Callas, Ianis Xenakis, Manos Hadjidakis, Mikis Theodorakis, Dionyssis Savopoulos, et al.). We shall also focus on representative music works and will enrich our discussion with selected music samples."
