NOTE: This is seminar is on WEDNESDAY.

Entry: FREE

Synopsis

This talk, part of the GOCMV Culture and History Seminars in conjunction with Pontiaki Estia, will focus on the fascinating case of two communities, the Kromlides and the Stavriotes, who periodically belonged to the Orthodox and Muslim communities during Ottoman times and were compelled to negotiate through prevailing expectations and stereotypes, along with a discriminatory legal system poised upon reform, at a time of great political foment and change.

The talk is given as part of the many community events organised by the Co-ordinating Committee for the Commemoration of the Pontian Genocide, for the weekend culminating in the 19th May, which is Pontian Genocide Remembrance Day.
