Biographical Text

Before joining NTU in 2011 Michael J. K. Walsh was employed at Eastern Mediterranean University (Famagusta, Cyprus) where he successfully nominated Famagusta for inclusion in the World Monuments Fund Watch List (twice) and acted as team coordinator for the United Nations project ‘Cultural Heritage Data Collection in the northern part of Cyprus’. He has also edited and co-edited four books on the cultural history and heritage protection of Famagusta. These are: Medieval Famagusta: Studies in Art, Architecture and History (Ashgate in 2012), Crusader to Venetian Famagusta (Central European University Press, 2014), Ottoman to British Famagusta (CSP, 2015) and The Armenian Church of Famagusta and the Complexity of Cypriot Heritage: Prayers Long Silent (Palgrave, 2017). His second research tangent is related to Modernism and the Great War and this has resulted in several books such as This Cult of Violence (Yale University Press, 2002), A Dilemma of English Modernism (University of Delaware Press, 2007), Hanging a Rebel (Lutterworth Press, 2008), London, Modernism and 1914 (Cambridge University Press, 2010), Australia and the Great War: Identity, Memory and Mythology (Melbourne University Press, 2016) and The Great War and the British Empire: Culture and Society (Routledge, 2016). He has just completed a monograph about poet / songwriter Eric Bogle called ‘An Old Man’s Tears: Eric Bogle, Music and the Great War’ which will be published by Routledge in January 2018. Michael was Associate Chair (Research) at ADM from 2012 – 2016, is currently Deputy Director of the University Scholars Program, and fellow of both the Royal Society of Arts and the Royal Historical Society.
