*** 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?
