New on the blog: The trafficking and geopolitical dynamics of the emigration crisis on the Polish-Belarussian border.

Culture and Conflict

This research considers the visual and material cultures of regions to understand the shifts caused therein by the conflicts in the regions of study for this hub. It will use a cultural mapping methodology to explore how communities of women, across different conflict contexts, rely on coded and tacit knowledge to rebuild their lives. Drawing on cultural mapping and fieldwork interviews, the project will produce academic publications, a catalogue of women’s craft practices across South Asia in English and regional languages, a travelling exhibition in Pakistan and Afghanistan, and a collection of essays.
