Upcoming Events At This Venue

March 14, 2012

Alexander Kitroeff

Professor, Haverford College

 

The stereotype of the newly wealthy, naive and over-friendly Greek American on a short visit to Greece was summed up with the Greek term “Brooklis” — most probably because the first such visitor was from Brooklyn.

There may well be a particular type of Greek American who resides in Brooklyn but he or she does not fit the stereotype.

This lecture and power point presentation explores the relationship between ethnicity and location by examining the ways New York’s most self-assertive, blue-collar and multiethnic borough has shaped the experiences of the many Greek Americans who grew up in Brooklyn.

In doing so it  highlights the careers of Greek Americans who gained national prominence growing up in a place where there was no ethnic concentration — no “Greektown” like Detroit’s — and where there was a wide dispersal of the Greeks among several other, larger ethnic groups.
