Levantine Alternatives: Greeks in Constantinople, Smyrna and Alexandria after 1821

A lecture by Dr Philip Mansel about how the Greeks who left the new kingdom and went to live in these cosmopolitan cities contributed to the development of the fledgling kingdom.

Philip Mansel is a historian of courts and cities, and of France and the Ottoman Empire. He was born in London in 1951 and educated at Eton College, where he was a King’s Scholar, and at Balliol College, Oxford, where he read Modern History and Modern Languages. Following four years’ research into the French court in 1814-1830, he was awarded his doctorate at University College, London in 1978.
