Teaching and Research Interests
Following my undergraduate studies in History at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, I moved to London and received my MA in Contemporary History and Politics (with distinction in the dissertation) from Birkbeck, University of London in 2006. In 2010 I obtained my PhD in History from the University of Cambridge. Before embarking on working as a teaching fellow at the School of History, I was an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Humboldt University of Berlin. I also offered teaching at the Free University of Berlin.
My research interests include travel, consumption, youth cultures, gender, migration, emotions and European identities. My doctoral thesis offered a cultural history of politics, examining left-wing youth politics in relation to leisure and sexuality in post-authoritarian Greece in the 1970s. Since 2011 I have been working on a comparative and transnational history of young tourists from West Germany and Greece in the 1960s-1980s.
