Website About Diaspora Greeks of Sydney and their History Launches

The history of the Hellenes of Sydney has finally been developed into a website for all to see and search. The website entitled “Dictionary of Sydney” took three years to produce.

Dr. Panayiotis Diamandis, whose research and writing headed the website – alongside other contributors – said it’s more than just a website as it features rare images, links, maps, sounds, and a plethora of historical information about Hellenes in Sydney.

“It was an honour to be asked to produce this work and I am very excited it is now online and there for all the world to see,” said Dr. Diamandis.

The Dictionary of Sydney is a groundbreaking project to produce a new kind of history of Sydney: online, growing and changing, covering every aspect of human life within the city.  This website is the first window into the Dictionary but, over time, it will also be accessible through other technologies, including mobile delivery, print-on-demand and others yet to be developed.

Geographically, the Dictionary of Sydney covers the whole Sydney basin and spans the years from the earliest human habitation to the present.

The project welcomes all kinds of history – engineering history, social and cultural history, economic history and so on. The website is also searching for historical contributions from neighboring disciplines such as archaeology, sociology, literary studies, historical geography and cultural studies.

The Dictionary contains new historical writing enriched with other resources – images, maps, sound, music, oral history, film, documents and pointers to important objects in Sydney collections. New material will be added regularly, and linked to what is already there.
