Introduction to History Lesson

Welcome to History Lesson, a 14-week-long Cypriot history course based entirely on films shot on the island before its division in 1974. We are very happy to see so many of you enrolled this semester, which marks the first time the course is being offered online, thanks to Buffer Fringe Performing Arts Festival 2020.

A few rules on housekeeping: the course will consist of biweekly mini-lessons, which you are encouraged to follow on this blog as well as on our dedicated Instagram page @therealhistorylesson. Each mini-lesson will feature a quiz or multimedia assignment. We expect you to hand in your homework within a week after it is posted, by tagging @therealhistorylesson on your answer sheet or media post on Instagram.

We encourage you to read the attached syllabus to familiarize yourself with the course materials. Please forward any questions you may have by DM’ing our instructor, the indefatigable Researcher, on the @therealhistorylesson Instagram account.
