Christos Xenos, «The Greek Film Production: 1942-1990. Cultural and production changes».The object of our presentation is the methodology of our dissertation. Our research is
multimethological. Its purpose is to explore and map Greek cinema in the period 1942-1990 in the light of its production process, which has been little studied, through the theoretical model of Fordism / post-Fordism, adopting a sociological perspective of the production of culture (Peterson, 1976), the perspective of the art world (Becker, 1982), but also taking into account the change of approach recommended by Caldwell (2008) and production studies (Mayer, Banks & Caldwell, 2009) in research on the production process of the film industries, towards a micro-level of analysis of the culture of production.

Eleni Pnevmatikou, «Cultural Trauma, Forced Relocation and a Virtual Reality view at the Pontokomi’s community case».
Pontokomians have to deal with a new forced relocation, which they perceive as a "second immigration", since it’s been a century after their ancestors’ forced mobility and consequent trauma (Asia Minor Catastrophe, 1920-23). This study investigates the conditions that could cause a cultural trauma – along with its unique characteristics - to Pontokomi’s inhabitants. Furthermore, via the use of virtual reality (VR) applications we are evaluating how the recollection and transcription of memories can positively reinforce the individual or collective trauma management process of Pontokomi’s inhabitants.

An interdisciplinary approach to the use of postcards as a communication object, with additional elements, which allowed the connection continuity with their birthplace. The study of these objects yielded elements that allowed their treatment beyond the usual, ie the tourist one, and turned them into cultural carriers of communication and interconnection.
