An Archive of Future Memories: A Letter to My Daughter

Dr. Dena Al-Adeeb, Visiting Scholar, UC Davis

In this talk, Dr. Dena Al-Adeeb corresponds with her daughter about everyday familial survival practices by charting the interconnections between a trilogy of personal and ancestral displacements and their relationship to three pivotal contemporary Iraqi and American histories, the ongoing living effects of US militarization, and the everevolving interventions in Iraq. Applying a transnational feminist lens to refugee studies, Dr. Al-Adeeb interweaves the analytical with life stories, artworks, and other creative practices, allowing for an intimate space to formulate feelings and emotions in theory and praxis.
