Abstract

For generations now Greeks have been migrating to Australia- from at least the 1820s if not earlier. Many have settled, some have returned permanently to Greece, while others have lived a twilight existence vacillating between the two countries. This article presents a number of Greek-Australians, or those of Greek descent, reflecting upon their forebears, and/or their succeeding generations, as well as upon themselves. Their stories provide personal, diverse, and often powerfully moving insights into their familys' generational development - the opportunities, the hopes, the challenges, the changes, the inspiration, the courage, the failures, the regrets, the sorrows, and the achievements. Collectively, their stories also provide personal perspectives into generational notions of diasporic Hellenic identity, trans-culturality, inter-culturality and hybridity in a world that, over the last 200 years, has progressively embraced ever increasing global connectivity and interdependence.
