Culture > Kytherian Identity

Benefaction 1. The Anointed Ones. Thoughts on the Art of Giving.

Look. [Magazine of the] Art Gallery Society of New South Wales.
July 2005.
p.27.

The answer I give to my stockbroker, who is a dear friend, when he teases me about my asking for more profit, is “the more money you make for us the more we can afford to give to the arts”. He really should stop teasing me, as he is a giver himself and knows the importance of benefaction and the pleasure it brings.

Australians are amongst the most generous ...

Leaving New York for Greece

Article by Zoe Artemis

The last thing I did before I left for JFK airport was to pin my 'don't blame me I voted for Gore' button onto my lapel. That was last summer. As I walked through the metal detectors at the airport the alarm went off, and the security guard said to me,' it's probably that button you're wearing, please take it off.' Oh great I thought, please arrest me, this would be great ...

Agia Pelagia 1889-1912

'Skoulandris' – Kaliope’s Room Nine Muses
Ayia Pelayia Kythera 25 October 2005 – Morning light.

Cape Maleas, crested with a canopy of cloud is highlighted by the risen sun. The sea gently laps on the pebbled beach. The Straits of Kythera smooth into the Sea Crete. A woman scarfed and clothed in black sits on a bench and watches, hopefully - a ship!
Perhaps a letter, a husband away so long, a son so far away as Australia.
Perhaps tomorrow.

Culture > Kytherian Identity

submitted by George Poulos on 26.01.2006

Kythera pre-1945 as a Gemeinschaft community.

The Kythera in which my parents and grandparents grew up was a Gemeinschaft community, as defined by Tonnies.

The traditions, rituals, beliefs - the general ethos of Kythera - confirm this fact.

Many of the adjustments that Kytherian's made in Australia involved adapting mentally to the increasingly more sophisticated Gesellschaft society that Australia became in the 20th century. Adjusting to the shift was much greater for Kytherians than it was for mainstream ...

Culture > Kytherian Identity

The oral society - insights from Gillian Bouras's Aphrodite and the Others.

Rural Greek societies - hence societies such as Kythera - are characterized in Bouras's work as
0ral - rather than literate
lived - rather than theorised about, and
pragmattic - rather than theoretical.

Here Bouras defines the difference between her pethera, a rural Greek woman, and herself, an urban Australian, "theoretician".
In the process she uncovers some of the socio-psychology of numerous Kytherian women; with whom, we, of the second generation ...
