This webinar will be a presentation from 2022–2023 Harvard Radcliffe Institute Hrdy Fellow Omar Dewachi. Dewachi’s ongoing project “When Wounds Travel” weaves almost two decades of ethnographic research with his personal experience of displacement and his medical and public health practice across Iraq, Lebanon, and Syria. Through documenting the trajectories and ecologies of war injury, trauma, and loss and the reconfigurations of healthcare and humanitarian geographies across the region, Dewachi asks, “What is revealed in the wound?” His explorations of the wound have been in conversation with multidisciplinary artists and curators. During the fellowship, he will expand this body of work in a book manuscript and a series of interactive audiovisual performances.
Live closed captioning will be available for this webinar. This event is free. All are welcome to attend.
