The Department of Anthropology will welcome Bridget Haas, visiting assistant professor of anthropology, to Case Western Reserve University for a book talk on her forthcoming book Suspended Lives: Navigating Everyday Violence in the US Asylum System.
Haas’s book explores the experience of asylum seekers in the midwestern United States in vivid detail. Drawing on long-term ethnographic fieldwork among Cameroonian and other African asylum seekers, Haas traces the emotional and social effects of being embedded in the US asylum regime.
This presentation will be held Friday, March 3, at 12:45 p.m. in Mather Memorial Building, Room 201. This lecture is free and open to the public. Pizza and drinks will be served.
