The visual art of refugees: Expressions of flight and exile
Dr. Pedram Khosronejad, Associate Director of the Iranian and Persian Gulf Studies
Program at Oklahoma State University, and Dr. Sholeh Shahrokhi of Butler University,
organized a panel for this year’s European Association of Social Anthropologists (EASA).
The panel is titled Anthropology of the Middle East and Central Eurasia Network.
This panel will explore anthropological works that introduce and reflect on the rich
repertoire of refugees visual productions and art expressions. Panel participants
will address how anthropology of visual art intersects with the scholarship of refugees,
exile, and border crossing. The panel will be held on Aug. 16.
This year marks the 15th EASA Biennial Conference. The four-day conference will be held Aug. 14-17 at Stockholm
University. The conference’s theme is Staying – Moving – Settling.
