His research focuses on the dialectical relationship of modern Greek literature with other forms of art and culture. A key part of his work is related to queer theory and the history of Greek queer culture in its various manifestations.

Dimitris Papanikolaou has published important works on the poetics of homosexuality by K.P. Cavafy, literature and popular music in France and Greece, the representation of the Greek family in contemporary Greek cinema, theater, and literature, and the cinematic genre of Greek “Weird Wave”.

Voice of Greece, ERT’s global radio, has included the “Greeks around the world” series in its program since 2022. These are shows curated by Greeks abroad, in the country where they live, introducing us to our fellow Greeks and their local activities.

The beginning was with Greece in Denmark, followed by Greece in Luxembourg and Greece in Argentina. “Greece in the United Kingdom” has now joined the series. It is presented by young journalist Eliana Nunes, a Greek-British national.

Tune in to “Greece in the United Kingdom” on Voice of Greece every last Sunday of the month, at 10:00 am Athens time.
