UNCOMMON GENEALOGIES: Violence, Belonging and Memory in the Eastern Frontier ~ Friday, September 10, 2021 ~ Live on Zoom

Live on Zoom. Registration is required and free.

PRESENTER
DR. SERAP RUKEN SENGUL: Distinguished Research Fellow, Promise Institute for Human Rights and the Center for Near Eastern Studies, at UCLA. 

This talk by Dr. Sengul engages a gender analysis of histories and memories of coexistence, conflict and violence in the Eastern borderlands of the Late Ottoman and Turkish Republican states. Tracing rituals of difference and relatedness that inscribed male bodies across periods of intercommunal cohabitation, state-centralization, the Armenian genocide and the Kurdish conflict, Dr. Sengul asks how an analytical focus on (male) gender and methodological orientation in genealogy may help render connective formations and experiences of political violence in these borderlands beyond the limits of historicism and/or methodological nationalism.
