Alekos Doukas (1900-1962): a dislocated life in the shifting terrain of the Eastern Mediterranean

Petro Alexiou

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

Abstract

The chapter aims to delineate an approach to the Eastern Mediterranean as a location for intellectual and ideological movements, as well as historical events, that impinged on, and to a large extent, shaped the early life and thinking of an historical subject, Alekos Doukas who emigrated to Australia from Greece in 1927. It is an integral part of a broader study of a writer and political activist that attempts to disrupt and complicate the assimilationist construction of non-Anglo migrants in Au.
