Cyprus, Female Voice and Memory: Literature, Arts and History in the work of Niki Marangou
Niki Marangou (1948-2013) was a writer and visual artist of unusual sensitivity and broad intellectual horizons who made a multifaceted and dynamic contribution to the cultural life of Cyprus. Her untimely death left a large void, stopping in its tracks a rich and creative career. This workshop aims to assess the work of Niki Marangou by placing it within the broader context of modern Cypriot literature, history and art. It will address the following issues: the female voice, visual arts and literature, regional identity and cosmopolitanism, Hellenism and the Mediterranean, history and literature.
