On April 23, 2003, to the surprise of much of the world, the ceasefire line that divides Cyprus opened. The line had been impenetrable to most Cypriots since 1974 - when the island was partitioned after the Turkish military intervened with the Greek junta-backed coup against President Makarios - and so international media heralded the opening of the checkpoints as a historic event that echoed the fall of the Berlin Wall. As in the moment of that wall’s collapse, cameras captured the rush of Cypriots across the border to visit homes unwillingly abandoned three decades earlier. It was a euphoric moment, and one that led to expectations of reunification. But a year later, Greek Cypriots overwhelmingly rejected at referendum a United Nations plan to reunite the island, despite their Turkish compatriots’ support for the plan.

The Past in Pieces investigates why the opening has not led Cyprus any closer to reunification, and how in many ways it has driven the two communities of the island farther apart. Over the course of two years, anthropologist Rebecca Bryant collected oral history from Turkish and Greek Cypriot villagers in the small northern town of Lapithos. Rather than examining monumental history, Bryant’s gaze is levelled at the home, the shop, and the village. By exploring the villagers’ intimate memories of home, childhood, family, and friends, she reveals the manner in which community narratives circumscribe and limit personal histories. The comparison of Greek and Turkish narratives of the same places and events, she contends, reveals how the logic, meaning, and processes of memory and narrative have differed in the two communities, and how these differences continue to impede peace between them.
