On Wednesday, 30th
of March, the kick off meeting for the two-year research programme DeepNic: Deep Mapping of Nicosia’s urban centre, 1960-2020
, took place at the CYENS Centre of Excellence premises with participants from Association for Historical Dialogue and Research and Appios Communications
The overall goal of the project is to investigate the evolution and transformation of Nicosia’s urban centre from a historical and sociological perspective using several types of data such as written, oral, and visual. The project considers the whole urban centre of Nicosia, across the divide, as a case study to examine how certain aspects of its character, were affected by major political and social developments that occurred in postcolonial Cyprus, from 1960 until today, with the aim to present a multi-level spatial narrative of the centre of Nicosia.
The kick off meeting aimed to bring all the members of the consortium together, present the structure and work plan of the project and determine the first steps.
Primary investigator and project coordinator is Dr Antigone Heraclidou
