Italian or Greek? Migration narratives of Italian/Greek immigrants from the Dodecanese to Australia

Diana Glenn, Maria Palaktsoglou, Daniela Cosmini, Eric Bouvet

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review



Our research on migration and identity is situated at the confluence of ltalian and Greek Migration Studies and aims to examine conflictual and hybrid identities in a migration and transnational context, as well as the status and
different facets of 'invisible' migration. By this, we mean people who are in limbo from an identity perspective or people whose voices have been repressed, or who are less visible in official migration discourse. Examples include migrant
children, women, domestics and prohibited migrants whose migration experiences have often been overlooked and remain largely undocumented. 253
Other circumstances of 'invisible' migration include citizenship identity obtained under foreign rule, as in the case of the Greeks from the Dodecanese who migrated to Australia after the First World War.
