GRKST 102 - The Greek American Community
CODE 56892 - Tues & Thurs 1:40-2:55 pm
Credits 3   Room TBA
Prof. Ioannides

This course will study the Greek experience in America since the early 1900's. We will examine the patterns of settlement around the US, the main Greek American insitutions (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 source of politicization of the Greek American community (e.g. the 1974 Cyprus crisis) and the role of Greek Americans in politics.

Innovative architectural forms, along with their mosaic, fresco, and marble decoration, create the transcendental character of Byzantine churches.
