Acknowledgments

The present volume is the result of the concerted efforts of many people and organizations over the course of nearly four years. The articles were originally delivered at a three-day interdisciplinary conference entitled "Cyprus and Its People: New Interdisciplinary Perspectives," held at Harvard University on December 1-3, 1994. The conference was organized and hosted by the George Seferis Chair of Modern Greek Studies at Harvard University in collaboration with the Center for Middle Eastern Studies. It comprised a keynote address, four consecutive panels covering in cross-disciplinary ways Political Science, History, Anthropology, Culture, and a concluding Plenary Session. Concurrently, there was a photographic exhibit of George Seferis's personal collection of Cyprus, graciously lent to us by the Princeton University Program in Hellenic Studies; as well as the American premier of Panikkos Chrysanthou and Niyazi Kizilyürek's documentary Our Wall, an emotional and lyrical film about intercommunal relations in Cyprus that has since won its creators the Ipekci Prize for Friendship between Greeks and Turks. There were twenty-one invited speakers, and the event attracted a registered audience of about one hundred and fifty participants.

The initial idea for the conference was warmly received and supported by the George Seferis Professor of Modern Greek at Harvard, Margaret Alexiou. The Chair proposed cooperation with The Center for Middle Eastern Studies, and its then director Professor William Graham Jr. gladly accepted. It was with the financial support of both these Harvard bodies, as well as the Department of The Classics (of which the Seferis Chair is a part), that the conference proceeded. Then graduate students affiliated to the program George Syrimis, Haris Stavrides, and Panagiotis Roilos were gracious with their time and thoughtful with their input throughout the period of preparation; Marios V. Broustas, the Chair's research assistant, provided much-needed technical support. Elsewhere on campus, eminent professors such as Profs. Michael Herzfeld, Stanley H. Hoffmann, Cemal Kafadar, and Nur Yalman as well former U.S. Ambassador to Greece Monteagle Stearns gave their support, advice, and encouragement.
