It’s been an honor and a pleasure to be working with this wonderful team. A special thank you to Norman Saadi Nikro and Sonja Hegazy.
 
The Social Life of Memory: Violence, Trauma, and Testimony in Lebanon and Morocco. Published by Palgrave Studies in Cultural Heritage and Conflict, December 2017.
 
The book stakes a critical claim for attending to the tension between the lieu and milieu of memory, a tension implicating site-specific social practices. It brings together research from scholars across the humanities and social sciences within a cohesive framework. It addresses themes of violence, trauma, and testimony to illustrate how they accrue conceptual relevance, and consequently a careful consideration of how concepts and theories “travel” and come to be exposed in different contexts and subsequently modified.
