In 2019, large-scale non-sectarian protests across Lebanon unsettled the political system and challenged the very understanding of Lebanese history, space, and identity. This protest movement has provided the opportunity for a new generation in Lebanon to rewrite, and potentially heal, the bitterly disputed histories of the country. 'Lebanon Unsettled' builds on the openings and momentum that this movement has created.
This workshop seeks to engage thirty participants selected through this call for participation on the significance of the 2019 protest movement, with particular focus on its spatial dimensions. The aim of this workshop is to engage the new generation in Lebanon about how they view the 2019 protests and its significance; as well as to create an "archive" from the workshop of this historical moment.
The USEK-LSE Middle East Center Academic Collaboration invites candidates to apply for its four-day workshop, from July 25-29, to analytically engage and reflect on the significance of the 2019 protests.
Applications are due July 10th; for full details and instructions to apply click here.
