ABOUT THE CALENDAR
Lecture | February 23 | 4-5:30 p.m. | Stephens Hall, 10 (ISAS Conf. Room)
Anila Daulatzai, Visiting Assistant Professor of Women’s Studies and Islamic Studies, Harvard Divinity School
This lecture is based on four years of anthropological fieldwork in Kabul, Afghanistan. It will explore what may be produced cumulatively throughout a life in a landscape of serial war and humanitarianism. What modes of relatedness to self, others, and the world follow when a seemingly harmless affect of sympathy and what appears as an obligation to kinship are embodied in a young orphan? What potential subjectivities emerge when one is cognizant that one is the socially demarcated recipient of societal mercy?
