Greeks in Canada: A Digital Public History

As the generation of Greeks who migrated to Canada in the 1950s and 1960s is slowly passing, it is urgent to preserve the memories of their experiences as immigrants and Greek Canadians.

“Greeks in Canada: A Digital Public History” aims to do so by conducting, analyzing, and publicly sharing video interviews. Researchers attached to the project will identify potential participants in a manner that highlights the diversity of Greeks across gender, class, generation, education, and occupation. In partnership with the Hellenic Heritage Foundation, the Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies, and others, the project team will generate digital stories, interactive maps, and other public digital history tools for teaching and research. In this manner, “Greeks in Canada: A Digital Public History” will contribute to the historiography on migration, ethnicity, and homeland politics, while also reflecting on methodological approaches in digital history. This project has been generously funding by a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada Partnership Development Grant.
