This week on our program, tune in to hear two special features which you absolutely will not want to miss! As part of this week’s Dialogos Interview Series, we will focus on a recent study-abroad program which brought several American college students to Greece for one month of studying and excursions. We had the opportunity to speak with the students who participated in this unique program about their experiences and impressions from Greece, and we also had the opportunity to interview the two professors who organized this program, Nikos Alexiou of Queens College in New York City, and Dimitrios Apostolidis of the Hellenic American College in Athens. The two professors spoke about this study abroad program that they helped organized and which was sponsored by their respective universities, about the importance of such programs for restoring Greece’s international image, and they also discussed issues pertaining to education, Greek culture, national identity, and immigration. Additionally, they also discussed the various academic programs that are offered by the Hellenic American University to Greek and foreign students.
In addition, on this week’s broadcast we will launch our new radio feature, Portes Magazine Exclusives, which is produced in conjunction with the editorial staff of Portes Magazine, a Greek-American magazine which opens doors to the worldwide Greek community. This feature will air regularly on our program and will present interviews and other content from the magazine, pertaining to Greek culture, notable Greek personalities, and the Greek diaspora. In this week’s debut, Portes Magazine Exclusives and its editors, Vasiliki and Anthe Mitrakos, will feature a new Greek start-up which is attempting to make a difference in the field of volunteerism in Greece and abroad.
Tune in for these two special features, plus lots of great Greek music, only on this week’s edition of Dialogos Radio! Tune in this Friday morning at 9 am central time on KVRX online, at www.kvrx.org!
