My PhD thesis at SOAS was on the literatures of Greece and Turkey inspired by the war of 1919-1922. I published some material on this subject in a chapter of the collective volume, When Greeks and Turks Meet (ed. Vally Lytra, Ashgate 2014). On a more contemporary note in 2015 I coedited with Eleni Yannakakis a collection of essays entitled, Critical Times Critical Thoughts Contemporary Greek Writers Discuss Facts and Fiction, in which leading Greek writers reflect on the crisis and its background.
I am currently revising my thesis for eventual publication and exploring new sources, some unpublished, that are relevant to the subject. The research facilities at King’s, particularly the Greek holdings of the Maughan Library and the academic staff of the Centre for Hellenic Studies provide the ideal place for this work.
