*"Children of the Dictatorship: Student Resistance, Cultural Politics, and
the 'Long 1960s' in Greece"*

*Wednesday, December 4th, 6:15p.m., Hamilton Hall, Room 516*

Putting Greece back on the cultural and political map of the 'long
1960s,' this book traces the dissent and activism of antiregime
students during the dictatorship of the Colonels (1967-1974). It
explores the cultural as well as ideological protest of Greek
student activists, illustrating how these 'children of the
dictatorship' managed to re-appropriate indigenous folk tradition
for their 'progressive' purposes and how their transnational
exchange molded a particular local protest culture. It examines
how the students' social and political practices became a major
source of pressure on the Colonels' regime, finding its apogee in
the three-day Polytechnic uprising of November 1973 which laid
the foundations for a total reshaping of Greek political culture in
the following decades.

Kostis Kornetis is Assistant Professor at the Center for European
and Mediterranean Studies at New York University. He received
his PhD in History and Civilization from the European University
Institute, Florence. From 2007 to 2012 he taught in the History
Department at Brown University. His research focuses on the
history and memory of the 1960s, the methodology of oral history,
and the use of film as a source for social and cultural history.
