History, Culture, Siteseeing

Nicosia is the largest city, capital, and seat of government of the island of Cyprus. It is located near the centre of the Mesaoria plain, on the banks of the River Pedieos.

Nicosia is the southeasternmost of all EU member states’ capitals. It has been continuously inhabited for over 4,500 years and has been the capital of Cyprus since the 10th century. The Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot communities of Nicosia segregated into the south and north of the city respectively in early 1964, following the fighting of the Cyprus crisis of 1963–64 that broke out in the city. This separation became a militarised border between the Republic of Cyprus and Northern Cyprus after Turkey invaded the island of Cyprus in 1974, occupying the north of the island, including northern Nicosia. Today North Nicosia is the capital of Northern Cyprus, a state recognized only by Turkey, that is considered to be occupied Cypriot territory by the international community.

The multi-disciplinary conference aims to bring together academics and professionals, especially from the fields of media studies, journalism, communication, politics, law, sociology, governance, humanities, cultural analysis and technologies, to elaborate, discuss and advance ideas on the inter-relationship, synergies, conflict, policy and future directions of humanities, journalism, and communications in a new era dominated by technology.

It will address areas related to the dynamic interplay between the media, the polis (politics) and the public sphere (agora)…
