  2. Rebetika: The Blues of Greece

    November 10, 2015 - November 12, 2015
    The urban popular songs and dances called rebetika (or rembetika) have become as representative of Greece as flamenco is of Spain or the tango is of Argentina. These musical traditions emerged at roughly the same period from the poorest section of society..
  3. Onassis Symposium 2015: World Citizens
    Friday, October 23, 2015, 7 PM
    Think and drink with the greatest minds in the world!
    The Western articulation of the idea of world-citizenship begins with Diogenes’s idea of the κόσμου πολίτης (citizen of the world). Since, for fourth-century Greeks, a πολίτης (citizen) came from a πολίς (city), the Cynic philosopher must have meant the idea to be paradoxical, since the thought was that you could have the universe as your hometown.
