2015 Summer Research Series: Divisions in History Among Greek Cypriots

This summer, Duke rising senior Laura Brody's research will answer the question of how divisions within Greek Cypriot nationalism are represented in the Museum of National Struggle on the Greek Cypriot side of the island’s divided capital Niçosia. In addition to this case study, she will conduct interviews with former EOKA/EOKA-B members, scholars of Greek Cypriot history and museum curators across Cyprus. This project will contribute to a thesis regarding memory politics and internal division in nationalist movements within divided societies such as Northern Ireland and Cyprus.

Laura Brody is from North Carolina and is pursuing majors in both International Comparative Studies and French Studies.
