Categories in Trouble: The Politics of Identity in North Africa, 19th-20th Centuries

A Half-Day Conference

Friday, October 7, 2016

10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Maison Française East Gallery, Buell Hall

Over the past two centuries, North Africa has been transformed by momentous economic and political change as well as mass migration. This one-day conference will address how these developments have shaped conceptions of population and territory and, in turn, personal and collective identities.

With Sarah Ghabrial (Columbia University), M'hamed Oualdi (Princeton University), Emmanuelle Saada (Columbia University), Joshua Schreier (Vassar College), Jennifer Sessions (University of Iowa), Todd Shepard (Johns Hopkins University), Judith Surkis (Rutgers University), Sylvie Thénault (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique), Jonathan Wyrtzen (Yale University).
