Danforth Comes to the Rescue

Danforth is the name of a street in Toronto where Macedonians and Greeks live and sometimes go out to play "kick your ass" over a statue of Alexander the Great. It is also the name of Loring Danforth, a professor of anthropology at Bates college. The link below is from last summer, so Danforth has already completed his interviews and is now in the process of writing his book. Looking forward to reading it.

Bates College | Loring Danforth:

"In late August, Danforth travels to Toronto where he will conduct interviews with child refugees from the Greek Civil War. He has focused much of his scholarly attention on Greece, Macedonia and Australia. His award-winning book 'The Macedonian Conflict: Ethnic Nationalism in a Transnational World' (Princeton University Press, 1996) concerns the claims to and construction of Macedonian identity in Northern Greece and Australia. He is also the author of 'The Death Rituals of Rural Greece' and 'Firewalking and Religious Healing: The Anastenaria of Greece and the American Firewalking Movement,' both published by Princeton University Press."
