Research Biography

Yianni Cartledge is a PhD graduate and adjunct (associate lecturer) at the College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences, Flinders University. He completed his PhD in Dec 2023, under supervision of Professor Andrekos Varnava, Professor Philip Payton and Dr Evan Smith. His PhD thesis, titled 'Aegean Islander Migration to the United Kingdom and Australia, 1815-1945: Emigration, Settlement, Community Building, and Integration', explores the migration of Greek islanders, particularly from the Aegean Sea, to the Anglo-speaking world during the nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. His case studies include the Chiots of London, and the Ikarians of South Australia.

Yianni’s research interests include migration and the migrant experience, diaspora studies, South Australian history, European and Mediterranean histories (particularly the British and Ottoman Empires), and the history of modern Greece, which can be seen through his Honours dissertation (supervised by Professor Andrekos Varnava) focussing on British Christian-humanitarianism during the 1822 Chios Massacre. An article originating in his Honours thesis, ‘The Chios Massacre (1822) and early British Christian-humanitarianism’ was published in Historical Research (Feb 2020). He has also written a biographical entry on Greek-Australian fisherman and seafood merchant George Angelakis for the Australian Dictionary of Biography (2021); and has recently co-authored the article 'Making and Monitoring a ‘Suspect Community’: Australian Attacks on Greeks and the ‘Secret Census’ in 1916' with Andrekos Varnava, published in Australian Historical Studies (2024).

Yianni has recently co-edited a volume with Andrekos Varnava, dealing with the 200-year anniversary of the Greek Revolution (1821-32), titled New Perspectives on the Greek War of Independence: Myths, Realities, Legacies and Reflections, published with Palgrave (2022). Yianni is also co-author of two chapters in the volume (one with Andrekos Varnava and one with Chris Kourakis), and sole author of one chapter titled 'The Chios Massacre and Chiot Emigration: A Coerced Diaspora'. A chapter by Yianni titled 'Greek islander migration to South Australia 1919-1939: Emigration, settlement and community building' was published in a book by the PHA SA, titled South Australia, 1919-1939 (eds. Caroline Adams & Brian Dickey, 2022).

Yianni is also a teacher and casual academic, and has worked as such in primary, secondary, tertiary, and adult education settings, having taught modern history, Modern Greek language, and English. He has taught and marked for topics including 'HIST1704: History's Killing Fields' and 'HIST1703: Turning Points in World History', among others, at Flinders University since 2020. He is the former secretary of the History Council of South Australia (HCSA) (2020-2023), former membership secretary of the South Australian Professional Historians Association (PHA SA) (2020-2022), and current treasurer of the CHASS Postgraduate Association (2022-2024).
