Upcoming lecture at CVAR: “The City In-Between: Competing visions for the image of Limassol”

As my last big initiative in Cyprus this year, I’ll be giving a presentation on some of my Fulbright research at 6:30 pm on Thursday, June 16 in the CVAR museum in the old city of Nicosia.

The lecture is titled, “The City In-Between: Competing visions for the image of Limassol,” and consists of a narrative collage about the Cypriot city which has rapidly transformed from a sleepy seaside village into the “Dubai of the Mediterranean.” The lecture is co-organized by the CVAR, the Cyprus Institute, and held with the support of the Active Citizens Fund. If you’re in Cyprus, I hope to see you there!
