Visuality and Creation of Liminal Spaces of Participation
Early-career scholars from the Arab Middle East and North Africa are invited to apply for this workshop to discuss ethnographic approaches to the everyday “politics of presence” imposed by ordinary people and practiced within the public sphere, as related to how power is produced within society and how citizens engage in political expression even in repressive contexts.
