AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This paper will concentrate on a particular methodology which aims to deconstruct the literature of diasporic Greek Australian writers, mainly that written by Christos Tsiolkas and Vasso Kalamaras, and compare this with particular themes explored by the modern Greek writer, George Seferis. I shall then show how a new body of texts which is now emerging in Australia, specifically oral testimonials of migrants compiled in anthologies, can add further insights and contextualise the particular themes which this paper explores. This kind of research is relatively new as it involves a cross disciplinary methodology which deals with cultural analysis, together with literary critique, showing how literature and lived experience is an interpretative transaction' (31).
