Social Hour: 4:00 PM
Lecture: 4:30 PM


Lecture on Early Greek Immigrants to USA

SPEAKER: Dr. Thomas Gallant, Professor of Modern Greek History at UC San Diego

TOPIC: Tales from the Dark Side: The "Other" Greeks of the Diaspora

Prof. Thomas Gallant explores the social world of the Greek men and women who migrated from the Ionian Islands, the Greek Kingdom and the Ottoman Empire during the Nineteenth Century.
Rather than focusing on the elites and the wealthy, this lecture focuses on the lives of working people -- sailors, stevedores, artisans and prostitutes -- many of whom fell afoul of the law. While theirs is not a story that is well-known, even among historians, this paper contends that no history of the Greek Diaspora will be complete unless it contains their history.
