The complex society of late medieval Cyprus has been attracting scholarly interest for some time, and in recent years international conferences and publications by established scholars have proliferated. This trend is also reflected in the numerous doctoral and postdoctoral research projects currently under way in universities throughout Europe. This workshop, convened by Thomas Kaffenberger and Tassos Papacostas, will bring together doctoral candidates from across the UK and beyond, to present and discuss the results of current research taking place on various aspects of the history, art and architecture and visual culture of Cyprus. One of the common key aspects will be the investigation of neglected sources and monuments as well as the implementation of new methodologies in order to gain knowledge about processes of social interaction and of artistic transfer in the multicultural environment of the island.
