Join us for a conversation with anthropologist Smadar Lavie. Lavie received her doctorate in Anthropology from the University of California at Berkeley, specializing in the anthropology of Egypt, Israel, and Palestine, with emphasis on issues of race, gender, and religion. She has written and co-edited a number of books and volumes including The Poetics of Military Occupation (UC Press, 1990), which won the 1990 Honorable Mention of the Victor Turner Award for Ethnographic Writing, Displacement, Diaspora and Geographies of Identity (Duke Univ. Press, 1996), Creativity/Anthropology (Cornell Univ. Press, 1993), and her most recent, Wrapped in the Flag of Israel: Mizrahi Single Mothers and Bureaucratic Torture (Berghahn 2014). This program has been generously sponsored by the Department of Religion, the Department of History, the Department of Anthropology, the Center for the Study of Force and Diplomacy, and the Middle East and North Africa Study Group at the Center for the Humanities at Temple.
