Insularity and Empire: Ottoman Cyprus in the early modern Mediterranean
We will read a section of Professor Antonis Hadjikyriacou's upcoming monograph about insularity in Ottoman Cyprus. Antonis Hadjikyriacou is currently Marie Curie Intra-European Fellow at the Institute for Mediterranean Studies, Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas. His research engages with the idea of insularity, and enquires into the role of insular space in the historical development of economic, social and political structures in Cyprus and the Ottoman Mediterranean at large. Antonis earned his Ph.D. in History at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London in April 2011.
