Women, Camps, and "Bare Life" in the Northern Uganda Conflict

April 5, 12:30pm - 2:00pm
Manoa Campus, Saunders Hall 637

Please join us at the Women's Studies Colloquium Series for a presentation by Dr. Ayesha Nibbe, Assistant Professor, Department of Anthropology, Hawaii Pacific University. This talk tells a story about life in displacement camps in wartime northern Uganda. A focus on women reveals the subtle ways that “camps” are used as technologies of power, violence, and control over a population and how gender is an essential symbolic tool used by humanitarian organizations to construct notions of “bare life.” However, in spite of this, camp dwellers – and women, in particular – negotiate these circumstances by finding fractures through which they create spaces of agency and empowerment.
