War Is Coming: Between Past and Future Violence in Lebanon
Kresge Hall, Evanston IL
Northwestern University

In this lecture, Sami Hermez will argue that the country’s political leaders have enabled the continuation of violence and will examine how people live between these periods of conflict. What do everyday conversations, practices, and experiences look like during these moments? How do people attempt to find a measure of certainty or stability in such times? Hermez’s ethnographic study of everyday life in Lebanon between the volatile years of 2006 and 2009 tackles these questions and reveals how people engage in practices of recollecting past war while anticipating future turmoil.
