I am a Social Anthropologist and my research has mostly focused on issues of ethnic conflict, nationalism, social memory, history education and Cypriot cinemas in a comparative perspective involving the two sides of divided Cyprus. My newer research explores issues related to migration and social democracy in Denmark, and more recently the comparative study of cemeteries.
