Congratulations to Professor Diana Allan, Canada Research Chair for her project, The Anthropology of Living Archives

Published: 12 January 2022

Professor Diana Allan, Associate Professor in the Institute for the Study of International Development and the Department of Anthropology, is one of McGill's most recent recipients of a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair for her project, "The Anthropology of Living Archives".  Professor Allan, an anthropologist and filmmaker, focuses on the histories of the 1948 displacement of Palestinian refugees to Lebanon. Her project, the Anthropology of Living Archives, will employ ethnographic, archival, and audiovisual methods to explore the decolonizing potential of refugee narratives to challenge the logics of modern state-formation. She hopes her work will invite new ways of thinking about sovereignty, territoriality, and redress in an era of settler-colonial reparations.
