Reading socio-political experiences through graffiti and street art in conflict-affected societies.

Street art and graffiti can provide socio-political commentary and rich insight into societies, cultures, social issues, trends, political discourse, and spatial and territorial identities and claims. Through his field research in Cyprus, Northern Ireland, and Canada, Dr. Eric Lepp will engage with graffiti as a spatial and temporal resource in societies undergoing social and political transformation.


Dr. Eric Lepp explores spaces of contact and the construction of a community that includes the ‘other’ in conflict-affected societies. He is particularly interested in counter-cultural, resistant, and unexpected spaces where peace is being enacted and imagined against a backdrop of division.
