The Society for Multi-Ethnic Studies: Europe and the Americas
Bus tour and lunch in Nicosia
The tour will give the participants a chance to explore old Nicosia, the area in close proximity to the old city’s Venetian walls. The group will walk within and past the publicly accessible areas of the Buffer Zone and experience the multiple physical antitheses the area offers: commercial streets vs abandoned buildings, vibrant city centre vs liminal spaces, and so on. The tour will be guided by Dr Katerina Antoniou, who will discuss the city’s peacebuilding discourse and the identity threats it has faced, as well as illustrations of its multicultural and multiethnic character.
Special instructions: Please ensure that you have a passport or EU identification document with you, and that you wear comfortable clothes and shoes. You are also advised to carry water, sunglasses and a hat for sun protection and self-care. The tour is scheduled to take approximately 2-3 hours, with a coffee break included.
