When Greeks and Turks Meet: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on the Relationship since 1923

When Greeks and Turks Meet, a collection of essays compiled under the editorship of Vally Lytra, who pens also the historical and theoretical introductory essay of the volume, is the product of collaboration between the Centre for Hellenic Studies at King’s College London and the Turkish Studies programme at SOAS. The volume is a strong, successful move forward in de-mythologizing the dominant historiographical narratives of Greece, Turkey, and Cyprus, whose intertwined histories have led the countries to see each other as natural enemies engaged in a perpetual state of conflict. The fourteen essays in the volume are divided into three parts, and the essays take up varying perspectives ranging from history and international relations to linguistics and literature.
