The Museum Lab  of CYENS Centre of Excellence, led by Dr Theopisti Stylianou-Lambert, Associate Professor at the Cyprus University of Technology, secured research funding from the Research & Innovation Foundation under the Excellence Hubs call, towards the realisation of the two-year research programme DeepNic: Deep Mapping of Nicosia’s urban centre, 1960-2020.

Primary investigator and project coordinator is Dr Antigone Heraclidou, postdoctoral research associate at CYENS Centre of Excellence which is the host organisation. The project’s consortium is completed by the Association for Historical Dialogue and Research and Appios Communications.

The proposal assumed the highest score out of 83 research proposals in the Social Sciences and Humanities category. The project aims 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 data. The project considers the whole urban centre of Nicosia as a case study to examine how its transformation within a certain period is affected by the major political and social developments that occurred in postcolonial Cyprus, from 1960 until today. Although conflict is a major part of this research, we are not only seeking to examine the effects of conflict on the city. This project goes a step further to include more contemporary developments, the impact, and repercussions of which are still very apparent and tangible.
