This book explores the meaning of home for Cypriot refugees living in London since their island was torn apart by war. Taking an innovative approach, it looks at how spaces, time, social networks and sensory experiences come together as home is constructed. It places refugee narratives at its centre to reveal the agency of those forced to migrate.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Helen Taylor's (2015) work on the Greek and Turkish Cypriot community in London is an investigation into how enforced displacement and exile problematizes questions of home, notably as diasporic generations become postdiasporic. ... Interweaving theoretical insights into a careful and revealing account of the phenomenologies of home, Taylor is able to convey the complexities of home and how most Cypriots experience a sense of deep rooted and yet dual belonging. ... Taylor's research constitutes strong empirical testimony to the abiding importance of soil and rootedness in the mythologies of nation." (Paul Nesbitt-Larking, Political Psychology, vol. 38 (3), 2017)
