We will examine the patterns of settlement around the US, the main Greek American institutions (family, church, schools, 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 communication/ social media. Special emphasis will be given to the sources of politization of the Greek American community (e.g the 1974 Cyprus crisis) and the role of the Greek Americans in politics.
