Everyday Aspects of Anthropological Research in the Middle East and North Africa, with Dave Crawford and J. Zerrin Holle

Monday, November 5, 2012

Dave Crawford is Associate Professor and Chair of Sociology and Anthropology at Fairfield University in Connecticut. His anthropological fieldwork has focused on Berber speakers in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco, particularly regarding issues of globalization, the transition to wage labor, gender and household dynamics, and social inequality. He won the Julian Steward Award for his first book, Moroccan Households in the World Economy, and he has a coedited volume coming out this spring, Encountering Morocco: Fieldwork and Cultural Experience.

J. Zerrin Holle is a student in the Anthropology and Middle Eastern Studies Departments at Bard. Her ongoing fieldwork involves working with Kurdish communities that are internally displaced throughout Turkey, specifically in Istanbul. Her research focuses on issues of forced migration and resettlement.

This event is co-sponsored by the Center for Civic Engagement and MES.
