Asli Zengin, Louise Lamphere Visiting Assistant Professor of Anthropology and Gender Studies, Department of Anthropology, and the Center for Middle East Studies at Brown University are organizing a one-day workshop titled “Death and Afterlives in the Middle East,” to be held on Friday, September 27, 2019.
The theme for the conference will bring together academics from around the world to consider the social, political, symbolic and material life of death. Participants will discuss how death and its afterlives help us develop new tropes to think about belonging, migration, mobility, regimes of security, war on terror, violence, intimacy, and care.
Confirmed participants include Eirini Avramopoulou, Osman Balkan, Denise Gill, Frances Hasso, Minoo Moallem, Graham Auman Pitts, Kali Rubaii, Sima Shakhsari, Nadera Shalhoub-Kevorkian, and Nukhet Varlik.
