Conversation Series with Meyda Yegenoglu on State Violence and Ethnic Minorities

Discourse of Colonial Humanitarianism is the final seminar/lunch in the Conversation Series with Meyda Ye¿eno¿lu on State Violence and Ethnic Minorities.

This conversation series will problematize several issues that pertain to the question of state violence and ethnic minorities. It will discuss the problematic nature of apology and seeking forgiveness, and mourning; it will examine the status of testimony and literary representation of eye-witness accounts. It will also unravel the nature of the public secrecy and the dynamics shaping forgetfulness alongside with the discourse of colonial humanitarianism.

Meyda Ye¿eno¿lu is a Gender, Sexuality and Feminist Studies visiting Professor from University of Tampere, Finland.

Lunch will be served! Please RSVP to Julie Wynmor or go to DukeGSF Facebook
