Migration, integration, acculturation

Greek-Australian women across generations

Elizabeth Kefallinos

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In this paper I will discuss the major issues of acculturation as they have been researched, conceptualized and presented in the various disciplines since the sixties where the concept of acculturation was conceived, examined and articulated, mainly, in sociology and psychology in order to understand the phenomenon of migration and ethnicity matters; in the process I will discuss oral narratives that derived from a field research - which was undertaken by the author of this paper during 2009 - with the aim to expose and possibly to articulate a comprehensive process that would reveal the nature of acculturation amongst Greek-Australian women in three generations.
