Yiannis Papadakis holds an appointment in the Department of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Cyprus, and is a visiting scholar at UCSC. Papadakis’s published work on Cyprus has focused on ethnic conflict, borders, nationalism, memory, museums, historiography, history education and cinema. His recent work explores issues of migration and social democracy in Denmark, based on fieldwork with Greek and Greek Cypriot immigrants in Copenhagen.
