Description

Lecturer: Dean Kalimniou

Synopsis

Contrary to popular Greek conception, the Turkic penetration into Asia Minor predated the fall of Constantinople and was a slow and lengthy process.

This lecture examines the socio-political and ethno-cultural realities that occasioned a complete inversion in the demographic nature of the region, exploring how this impacted upon the evolution of both the Byzantine and Turkic communities in Asia Minor.

Bio

Dean Kalimniou is also a well-known poet and short story writer within the Greek community. As a journalist he is popular within the Greek community of Australia through his column in the Melbourne Greek newspaper Neos Kosmos, entitled Diatribe, which has been running since 2001. He has published six poetry collections and has also translated numerous works of prominent Greek-Australian authors from Greek into English. In November 2007, Dean Kalimniou was awarded a Government of Victoria Award for Excellence in Multicultural Affairs.
