Ikarian Documentation Pages

an on-line project of the Documentation, Research and Action Center of Ikaria

About Ikarian Documentation Pages

libraryThe Ikarian Documentation Pages is part of a wider research project of the Documentation, Research and Action Center of Ikaria. The source of inspiration for this project is Ivan Illich and his work in Mexico, where in 1961, he established the Intercultural Documentation Center, aiming at documenting the role of ‘modern development’ in the dismemberment of local cultures, the loss of traditional ways of life and the creation of poverty.

The Documentation Pages aim at becoming a bank of knowledge and memory. In this blog, we will publish index catalogs of available documents that are housed in the Documentation, Research and Action Center of Ikaria and -soon hopefully- in the General Archives of the State, located in  Ikaria. In addition, we will publish catalogs of photographic material, articles from the local press (from early 20th century), bibliographies, abstracts and reviews of books that are related to Ikaria. For the time being, we are publishing index catalogs in Greek (see the Greek version of this blog).

In order to browse the index catalogs, choose “Index Cards” on the left menu. You can also choose a category from the columns on the right (Browse by document type, Browse by Theme).  Finally, you can browse documents by category or by month from the “Archive” at the bottom of this page.
