Yannis Skalidakis, Panteion University
I obtained my PhD at the School of Political Sciences at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, with a historical dissertation entitled: Political Committee of National Liberation (1944): a type of revolutionary government. Political, economic and social aspects. I am now postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Political Sciences and History of the Panteion University, Athens, examining the occupation period on the island of Crete. My research interests include modern Greece, the 20th-century Mediterranean and European History and my specialisation field is Second World War history and the occupation period in Greece (1941-1944).
