GO Cyprus: A Table Divided
GO Cyprus is a two-week summer program centered in Nicosia, Cyprus. Students are immersed in Cyprus’ rich history and explore the political division between the Turkish-Cypriot Republic of Northern Cyprus and the Greek-Cypriot Republic of Cyprus, and how those identities are often reflected in the culture, politics, and food. Students will participate in a cooking class designed to compare and contrast the differing cultures of Greek Cyprus and Turkish Cyprus.
This program includes several day trips to both the northern and southern parts of the beautiful Mediterranean Island, such as Kyrenia and Troodos mountain villages, and Kourion and Kolossi castles.
