Title: Colonizers or migrants? The Greek community in Italian Eritrea
Starting date: 2023
Project Description: At the University of Potsdam, I will undertake the “Colonizers or migrants? The Greek community in Italian Eritrea” research project. The objective is to shed light on the mindset of Greek migrants in late 19th century Eritrea, who found themselves situated among the Italian ruling class and the colonized native populations. The project will provide a contribution to ongoing postcolonial debates surrounding racism, social change, identity, settler colonialism and colonial capitalism.
