Greek Australians in their own image: Katerina Karvouni

Effy Alexakis, Leonard Janiszewski

Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/WebsiteArticle


With ongoing interest in the migration stories between Greece and Australia, attention should be given to those women who were left behind in regions within Greece that had been heavily affected by male migration to Australia prior to the 1950s. In some villages, a dramatically destabilising situation had developed where women far outnumbered the men. Whilst not Greek-Australians, these women should nonetheless be considered part of the narrative of Greek female migration to Australia. Katerina Karvouni from Ayia Saranta on Ithaca was one of these 'forgotten' women.
