*Tuesday, May 10, 2016 | 18:30-20:00*
*Columbia Global Centers | Istanbu
Siraselviler St. 49/5 Taksim
Columbia Global Centers | Istanbul invites you to a Public Lecture by

*Stavros Anestidis,  Director of the **Center for Asia Minor Studies
in Athens, Greece*

The presentation focuses on the Greek Orthodox population of Sinasos
(Mustafapaşa) in Cappadocia and examines the peaceful process of abandoning
their homeland in June 1924 within the context of the Greek-Turkish
exchange of populations. The exodus of the Rum of Sinasos constitutes a
unique case in relation to the different forms of displacement of the Greek
Orthodox populations from other areas of Asia Minor.

This event is part of The World Responds to the Greeks*.* The product of a
unique collaboration between Columbia University, Columbia Global Centers |
Istanbul, and Boğaziçi University,  “The World Responds to the Greeks” is a
an undergraduate seminar offered simultaneously at Boğaziçi University and
Columbia University, and is part of the ongoing Columbia Global Seminar on
Byzantine and Modern Encounters
Originally offered in 2015 by Professors Karen Van Dyck and Martha Howell
of Columbia University, "The World Responds to the Greeks" is currently
being taught by Professor Dimitrios Antoniou in New York and Professor
Matthew Gumpert in Istanbul. This spring "The World Responds to the Greeks"
examines the way particular spaces serve as sites for the production and
reproduction of cultural and political imaginaries. It places particular
emphasis on the themes of the polis, the city, and the nation-state as well
as on spatial and literary representations of and responses to notions of
Greece across time. The question of space and the site-specific is also
raised by the very logistics of the course, which links two classrooms, two
groups of students, and two professors by way of long-distance learning
technologies. Unlike other courses live-streaming a single professor's
lecture to passive audiences, "The World Responds to the Greeks" emphasizes
dialogue, team-teaching, and students' active participation through the use
of special software and studio equipment.  "The World Responds to the
Greeks" aims to familiarize students not only with Greece as a space at the
crossroads of East and West but also with the ways in which different
disciplines have considered space across geography and time, and understood
it, in their own ways, as "Hellenic."  Towards that end the course has been
adapted to include a number of open classes in the form of public events to
facilitate a wider discussion and engagements with communities in New York
and Istanbul.

*Stavros Anestidis* was born in Istanbul in 1960. After graduating from the
private French Lycée Saint-Michel in Istanbul,  he continued his studies at
the University of Athens in the Department of Political Science, from where
he received in doctoral degree in 1993. In 1994, he started working at the
Centre for Asia Minor Studies as a researcher and since 2002 has served as
its director. His research focuses on the intellectual and cultural life of
Greek Orthodox communities in Asia Minor and Istanbul in the 19th century.
In recent years, his works focus on Turkish speaking Orthodox communities
of Cappadocia (Karamanlides) and the Karamanli literature.

Established in Athens in 1962, the *Center for Asia Minor Studies*
documents and disseminates archival material relevant to the everyday life
of Greek Orthodox populations in Asia Minor, their expatriation and
resettlement in Greece; publishes the *Bulletin* of the* Center for Asia
Minor Studies;* collects and preserves books and journals relevant to the
scientific interests of the Center; promotes research and organises events
in line with the Center's objectives.
