CALL FOR PAPERS The Minorities of Cyprus: Past, Present and Future 24 & 25 November 2007 Cyprus College , Nicosia Cyprus College invites submissions for the conference entitled "The Minorities of Cyprus: Past, Present and Future". The conference will focus on the Maronite, Armenian and Latin minorities, however the organisers welcome presentations on other minorities in Cyprus. The objective is to facilitate an exchange of research relating to the place of minorities in Cyprus' past since 1571 (Ottoman, British and Independence periods). We welcome proposals dealing with any aspect of the experience of minorities in Cyprus, including the literary and artistic, for the relevant historical period. We will consider most favourable those proposals that seek to consider broader and comparative frameworks. The conference organisers have secured the participation of Professor Panicos Panayi, De Montfort University and Dr Colin Heywood, University of Hull as keynote speakers. Assistant Professor Zelia Gregoriou, University of Cyprus, will give a special presentation and Professor Costas M. Constantinou, Keele University, will chair a panel of the three parliamentary representatives of the minorities. The conference will be held over the weekend of 24-25 November. Those interested should submit 150-word abstracts and a short biography by 5 October. The organising committee will reply by 10 October. Please note that the organising committee cannot fund people coming from overseas, but will organise for discounted accommodation at the Europa Hotel, which is walking distance from Cyprus College. Send abstracts and address any further queries to Dr Andrekos Varnava, Assistant Professor, History, School of Humanities and Social Sciences, Cyprus College , Nicosia 1516, Cyprus. 22713285; 99264330 firstname.lastname@example.org Best wishes, Dr Andrekos Varnava (on behalf of the organising committee) Organising Committee: Dr Andrekos Varnava, Cyprus College; Dr Nicholas Coureas, Cyprus Research Centre; Ms Marina Elia, Cyprus College; Dr Marios Mavrides, Cyprus College Sponsors: Cyprus College; Ministry of Interior; Cyprus Tourism Organisation; Bank of Cyprus ; Moufflon Bookshop. -- Dr Andrekos Varnava, Assistant Professor, History, School of Humanities and Social Sciences, Cyprus College, Nicosia 1516, Cyprus email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org -- H-LEVANT Editor
