Biography

Ilia Xypolia joined the Department of Politics and International Relations in 2015 as a Research Fellow and in 2016 was appointed to a Teaching Fellow. She has previously worked at the Universities of Keele and London. Ilia completed an IKY-funded PhD in Politics and International Relations at Keele University, UK. Before that, she read Political Science and International Relations at the Universities of Athens, Piraeus, and Warsaw.

Her publications and ongoing research cover various aspects of the history and politics of the Eastern Mediterranean through a globalist perspective. She is also the Reviews Editor of the refereed periodical Journal of Global Faultlines, published biannually by Pluto Press.
