    Collection title: [Oral histories of displaced women] (Cyprus: 1989–present)

    Description: Testimonies of persons displaced due to the 1974 invasion of Cyprus. About 7000 hours of recordings, the main body taken between 1989 and 2004. Around half the accounts are by displaced women and related by women, though perhaps a tenth of the material relates to the experience of displacement. Fewer hours (perhaps 5% of the total) deal with women’s emigration experiences (as a result of the Turkish Invasion). Researchers should be aware that the archive is not accessible remotely and materials are available in the Greek language only.
