The range of topics covered in the papers presented in this publication are diverse, covering the migration and settlement of Kalymnians to Darwin, while pre-1920s Greek transients to the Territory are examined in another paper, and a Greek outback pioneer showcased elsewhere. The Greek Orthodox Church in the diaspora, the Indigenous influence on Greek cultural developments in Australia and vice versa, the work of missionaries in Anatolia, and the Greek influence in Ottoman economics and transport are also discussed.
This eclectic collection is our first offering but one the editors believe readers will find interesting and informative. It demonstrates both the individuality and consistency of the Hellenic diasporic experience in the Northern Territory, Australia and elsewhere.
