For those of you who are in London. Might be an interesting lecture:

'The (Very Deep) Roots of Greece's Crisis: A Historical Reassessment'

The Hellenic Observatory research seminar 

Date: Tuesday 19 March 2013
Time: 6.30-8pm
Venue: TW1.G.01, Tower 1
Speaker: Professor Stathis N. Kalyvas 
Chair: Professor Kevin Featherstone 

Taking the present crisis in Greece as a departure point, Professor Kalyvas takes stock of the surprising number of critical junctures during the past two centuries, when Greece managed to become a focal point, both in negative and positive terms, of critical issues in European and global politics. This lecture also questions why a country so small and peripheral has come to play such a role, providing an interpretation based on a review of the country's history since it became an independent state in the third decade of the 19th century.

Stathis N. Kalyvas is Arnold Wolfers Professor of Political Science, Director of the Program on Order, Conflict, and Violence, and Co-Director of the Hellenic Studies Program at Yale University.  
This event is free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is on a first come, first served basis. For any queries contact Ioanna Antonopoulou by email or phone 020 7107 5326. For further information visit theHellenic Observatory website
