Evi Gkotzaridis is a historian with interests in 20th century Greek and contemporary Irish history. She was born in Salonica, raised in Paris, educated at the Sorbonne, and holds a PhD in Irish History and Politics. She lived for six years in Dublin, where she held a Government of Ireland Research Fellowship. She was a Jean Monnet Research Fellow at the European University Institute in Florence. She has taught in London, Dublin, Florence, Istanbul and Athens. Her first book, Trials of Irish History: Genesis and Evolution of a Reappraisal, was published by Routledge and represented the first synthesis on the sensitive topic of revisionist scholarship in Ireland. It examined its methodological, theoretical and political implications, and introduced a European dimension to a too-often insular debate on its pros and cons. She lives and teaches in Athens. A Pacifist’s Life and Death is her first book on Greece.
