We invite papers for our European Association of Social Anthropologists (EASA) 2018 panel (P037) on
*** Critical Feminism and the Politics of Austerity: Gender Regimes and the Making of Economic Orthodoxies *
The voice used to describe refugees often does not speak from experience. Media reports tend to objectify refugees as a political problem. In general, public life and narrative about refugees leaves experiences unspoken, perhaps because of cosmologies of nations, structural violence, trauma, or power differentials. Anthropological studies of voice, however, have exposed such problems in representation through a variety of methods and perspectives. This panel foregrounds experience to ask: What can research on voice teach us about refugee resiliency and adaptation?
Panel Title: “Things Fall Apart: Navigating the Dismantling of Policies and Government Institutions”
I apologize for cross-posting, but I'm hoping that you will do me the kindness of forwarding the following announcement to your students. I'm a US anthropologist living in Florence since 2006, conducting research and working with a range of study abroad programs, and I'm drawing on that combined experience to offer my own summer program in ethnographic research methods. Please feel free to contact me for any more information or just to talk about urban research in Europe. Grazie mille!
