Research seminar in cultural anthropology: Book talk: Egypt’s Football Revolution: Emotion, Masculinity, and Uneasy Politics
Both a symbol of the Mubarak government’s power and a component in its construction of national identity, football served as fertile ground for Egyptians to confront the regime’s overthrow during the 2011 revolution.
Carl Rommel is a social anthropologist. His doctoral research explored the emotional politics of Egyptian football before and after the January 2011 Revolution.
Research seminar in Ethnology (in swedish): The ethnologist and the image of man as a cultural being, Carina Johansson
“I hope to start a discussion about how we Ethnologists use images in our research, both as part of our material, as well as in presentations, reports and dissertations. It is something that could be developed, or at least we need to reflect much more on image in relation to text, because now images are somewhat forgotten and disadvantaged. ”
Research seminar in cultural anthropology: Auto Insurrection: Automotion, Pessoptimism and the Ends of Forensics with Peter Lagerqvist
Amidst an upsurge of violence in the occupied West Bank in 2015-2016, reports of Israelis being struck by cars driven by Palestinians began appearing in the Israeli media. The “Auto-Intifada,” as it was dubbed by some outlets, prompted the ‘preemptive’ detention of some 700 hundred Palestinians deemed immanent threats by the Israeli intelligence services, mainly on the basis of social media posts.
