Visions & realities: Cypriot experience in the transition from empire

An international conference in honour of Professor Robert Holland

A conference hosted by the Centre for Hellenic Studies in collaboration with the Cultural Section of the Cyprus High Commission, London.  The conference is being held to honour Professor Robert Holland’s acclaimed work on Imperial and Commonwealth History in general and the history of Anglo-Hellenic relations in the Eastern Mediterranean and Cyprus in particular.

The conference will bring together scholars specializing in modern Cypriot History and will create the forum for new findings on the island’s colonial and post-colonial experience, with a strong focus on Cyprus’s transition from a colony to an independent state. Simultaneously it will witness how modern Cypriot History has evolved in British historical academia over recent years.

The conference will be of interest to students of modern Cypriot history, Anglo-Hellenic relations, colonialism and post-colonialism.

The event will be held under the auspices of the High Commissioner of the Republic of Cyprus, H.E. Euripides L. Evriviades.
