Credits 3          PH 253                                               

Prof. Christos P. Ioannides                        

This course will study the Greek experience in America since the

early 1900s. We will examine the patterns of settlement around the

US, the main Greek American institutions (family, church, schools,

fraternal and local associations), upward social mobility and Greek

Americans in arts and culture; we will also discuss the cross-currents

of assimilation and Greek identity maintenance and the effect of

digital communications/social media. Special emphasis will be given to

the sources of politicization of the Greek American community (e.g.

the 1974 Cyprus crisis) and the role of Greek Americans in politics.
