New book: Cyprus and its Conflicts

2017-12-18

A new book entitled “Cyprus and its Conflicts. Representations, Materialities, and Cultures” has been published. The book is edited by Vaia Doudaki and Nico Carpentier.

Book description: The Mediterranean island of Cyprus is the site of enduring political, military, and economic conflict. This interdisciplinary collection takes Cyprus as a geographical, cultural and political point of reference for understanding how conflict is mediated, represented, reconstructed, experienced, and transformed. Through methodologically diverse case studies of a wide range of topics — including public art, urban spaces, and print, broadcast and digital media — it assembles an impressively multifaceted perspective, one that provides broad insights into the complex interplay of culture, conflict, and identity.

Introduction: A Multidisciplinary and Multiperspectival Approach to Conflict, by Vaia Doudaki and Nico Carpentier
