    Research Statement

    Evropi Chatzipanagiotidou joined the School as a Lecturer in Anthropology in January 2013 after receiving her DPhil in May 2012 from the University of Sussex. She also holds an MSc in Forced Migration (Oxford) and a BA in Social Anthropology (Sussex). She has previously taught Social Anthropology as an associate lecturer at Birkbeck, University of London (2012); and as an associate tutor at the University of Sussex (2007-2012), where she jointly received the Teaching Excellence Award in 2012. She has served as features editor in the journal ‘Studies in Ethnicity and Nationalism’ and is Secretary of the Anthropological Association of Ireland.

    Her research interests lie at the study of ethnicity, nationalism and anti-nationalism, peace activism, and the politics of memory in conflict affected contexts. Her doctoral work, based on long-term fieldwork between 2006 and 2008 in London and Cyprus thematically contributes to political anthropology, migration and diaspora studies and the anthropology of activism through a multi-sited ethnographic study of the political connections between the Cypriot diaspora in the UK and Cyprus. It also makes contributions to the anthropology of technology through the study of the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in the field of peace activism. She has published on the politics of memory in Cyprus and the diaspora, the politics of the Left and intra-communal violence and is currently completing a book manuscript tentatively entitled 'Conflicts and Diasporas: Identity, Peace politics and Transnationalism between Cyprus and the UK'.
