"Trauma and Memory: Thinking from Somali Diasporic Contexts": University of Michigan Frankel Center for Judaic Studies.

  community member   < less Alessandra and Amal

Amal Alhaag, moderated by Alessandra Benedicty-Kokken
This workshop focuses on how geographies continue to limit our thinking, even our potentialities in how we might think our Opacity/ies and Relation/s to each other. In particular, following Alhaag's invitation to think from Somalia, she asks, what is yielded when we think colonially bifurcated geographies together? When in Alhaag's words we imagine and care for each other 'from different oceans and seas that wrap around the African continent'? A description to Alhaag's related curatorial project will be available in a temporary Dropbox link ( https://www.dropbox.com/sh/y2kqddexyrrlxw8/AAAokTzyfj_Lhlu16CO6SI29a?dl=0).
