How do we imagine Nicosia beyond barriers – either physical, social or mental? Can we imagine Nicosia beyond barriers? Can Nicosia – as a site that is at once shared, divided and contested – invite and inspire us to write it, to be creative because of and about it?

We invite contributions from writers of fiction and non-fiction, poets, playwrights and cross-genre writers writing in English for the forthcoming anthology Writing Nicosia… beyond barriers.

Modern critical theory has sensitized us to notions of the body as a cultural/linguistic construct and “a site where regimes of discourse and power inscribe themselves” (Butler). Discourses of the body – in all kinds of narratives – influence moral and ideological positions. The Foucauldian Panopticon has become the metaphor for the processes by which disciplinary ‘technologies’ police both our minds and bodies. Some of these discourses have created systems of meaning that have gained the currency of ‘truth’, whilst other alternative discourses are marginalized and subjugated, yet potentially offer sites where hegemonic practices can be contested, challenged, and resisted.
