EMBCA has supported and collaborated with the Hellenic American Project (HAP) at Queens College headed by Prof. Nicolas Alexiou and who is also an EMBCA officer over the years. We are proud that our EMBCA scholarships to students and colleagues there have furthered and promoted Hellenic American studies. For example two of our past scholarship recipients filmmakers, Nikos Ventura and Lambrini Thoma, have done work in progress documentaries relating to Hellenes and African Americans and the documentary (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DziGTSRMQic) has been used as point of reference in a recent Zoom conference with 30 scholars, within the last couple of weeks. These dialogues and conference have helped discuss issues not very well studied or well known in Hellenic American studies.
Join us on Friday, June 26 at 6 P.M. for an art exhibit Prof. Alexiou has put together via the HAP Archives/Oral History Center, with nine Hellenic American female artists of the diaspora.
You are invited to a Zoom meeting.
When: Jun 26, 2020 06:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
