Michael J. K. Walsh has recently arrived at the School of Art, Design and Media, in Nanyang Technological University, having been employed at Eastern Mediterranean University (Famagusta, Cyprus) for nine years. In that time he successfully nominated Famagusta for inclusion in the World Monuments Fund Watch List, brought the Global Heritage Fund to the same city, and in 2010 acted as team coordinator for the United Nations project 'Cultural Heritage Data Collection in the northern part of Cyprus'. He was elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in recognition of his efforts to safeguard endangered Cypriot heritage. His co-edited book Medieval Famagusta: Studies in Art, Architecture and History will be published by Ashgate in 2012, and later that year he is hosting a conference on Famagusta in Budapest. Previous books include: 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) and Runaway Dreams: The Story of Mama's Boys and Celtus (Kennedy & Boyd, 2011).
