"Portrait of a Jew": Ethnic Identity and National Belonging in Cyprus is a critical examination of Jewish presence in Cyprus and a case study of Abigail and Daniel Miller who have been in Cyprus since the 1930s, and who have lived since 1974 in a military camp in the Buffer Zone. The paper discusses the "Cyprus Problem", but mainly focuses on how the Millers negotiate living between two communities, and on how their Jewish identity is articulated between the cracks of protracted conflict. The paper is a glance at the relationship between Jewish diasporic identity and post-colonial national identity in Cyprus.
