This course treats the language politics of Cyprus — a divided island since 1974, split by a UN buffer zone — as a way into broader discussions of borders, conflict, translation and intercultural communication.
Hosted at the Hagios Ioannis Prodromos nunnery in Northern Greece, seminar participants conduct fieldwork and participate in a workshop that complements their on-site research and cultivates discussions around the broader region’s archaeology, history and social anthropology. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there will not be a seminar in 2021.
Advanced doctoral candidates from any institution are invited to submit proposals. We welcome proposals that draw on research relevant to any aspect of the early modern and/or modern Greek world, in both local and global contexts, from the 15th century to the present.
