Mac Sweeney will present a paper entitled "Catastrophe and Katabasis: 
The 1922 Greek retreat from Turkey and classical metaphors".  Please see 
the abstract below.

The venue is the seminar room in the St John's Library (mezzanine level

Best,

Catastrophe and Katabasis: The 1922 Greek retreat from Turkey and 
classical metaphors

Abstract
The 26th August 1922. The broken remnants of the Greek army flee from 
central Anatolia down to the Aegean coast. Behind them lie Greece's 
dreams of overseas expansion, briefly realised in the partitioning of 
the Ottoman Empire after the First World War. After three years of 
occupation in Asia Minor, the Greek army has been defeated by the forces 
of the new Turkish Nationalist movement. The defeat marks a new phase in 
the eastern Mediterranean - Greece renounces its claims to Anatolian 
territory, the modern state of Turkey is born, and the Treaty of 
Lausanne causes the compulsory exchange of minority populations between 
the two new states. The Greek retreat from Anatolia therefore marks a 
crucial turning point in Balkan and eastern Mediterranean history - for 
the Greeks, it is the 'Great Catastrophe', but for the Turks it is the 
'National Struggle'. This paper considers how this turning point was 
described at the time - how was this moment represented, commemorated, 
and rationalised? What parallels are drawn, and what comparisons made?
