A Stream on “Continuity of Culture Between Ancient and Modern Greece”
Stream Leader:
Dr. Martha J. Payne, Visiting Lecturer, Indiana University-Purdue University, USA.

Modern Greece owes much of its present existence to its ancient past. Temples, archaeological sites and museums may come to mind, but few outside the academic community may realize that ancient Greece also influences other aspects of Modern Greek life both in language, and the physical world. The Modern Greek proverbial expression ‘και του πουλιού το γάλα’ meaning ‘the milk of the bird’ indicates that one has everything one needs, including the seemingly impossible. Ancient Greek ὀνιθῶν γάλα, ‘the milk of birds,’ indicates the same thing as the Modern Greek; it appears in ancient texts from the 5th c. BCE into the 4th c. CE. Physical examples are ‘tamata,’ small pressed metal plaques of body part images hung before icons in some Orthodox churches in Greece as the faithful pray for healing; examples are at Aghios Nektarios in Aegina. Similar objects, but of terracotta, were found in ancient temples of Asclepius, the ancient god of healing; examples are in the archaeological museum of ancient Corinth. This stream calls for papers treating any aspects of Modern Greek life that show strong continuity with ancient Greece. The connections may be linguistic, or physical, secular or ecclesiastical.

A Stream on “Oral Narratives: The Voices of Marginalized Arabs and Muslims”
Stream Leader:
Dr. Enaya Othman, Director, AMWRRI’s Oral History Project and Assistant Professor & Director of Arabic and Cultural Studies Program, Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures, Marquette University, USA.

Oral narratives are important accounts that document the experiences and the histories of marginalized and underrepresented groups. They bring the voices of the voiceless to the center of historical and contemporary discussions. They utilize the power and the complexity of lived experiences and the intersectionality of culture, class, gender, race/ethnicity, and religion in the structuring and restructuring of the Arab and Muslim communities around the world, including in the United States and Europe. The process of migration, settlement and integration are connected to cross cultural and transnational discourses especially in the age of advanced and instant communication. Historians, anthropologists, social scientists along with scholars in other disciplines are using diverse approaches in their research and since the second half of twentieth century, oral narratives are considered to be invaluable sources of documentation across these disciplines. We are interested in papers that utilize oral narratives to examine topics related to the process of Arab and Muslim mobility and community building. (voluntarily and involuntarily movements and settlements).
