300 days of detention for Fariba Adelkhah

We’ve been in lockdown for 20 days. Fariba Adelkhah, a researcher at the International Research Centre of Sciences Po Paris, has been in prison for 300 days in Iran. By posting her face on the websites of academic institutions and research teams in Europe and elsewhere, we want to show the support of the scientific community and urge the French government to do everything possible to secure her release.

Fariba Fariba is in danger. We must act urgently for her.

Europe: a Resentful Confederation of Vanquished Peoples? Raw and Lapsed Memories of Post-Imperial (European) Minorities

Research Area 1 – Displacements, “Dépaysements” and Discrepancies: People, Knowledge and Practices

Contact: michele.baussant@cnrs.fr

Michèle Baussant is an anthropologist, research director at CNRS. She graduated in history and anthropology at Paris-Nanterre University and held a post doctorate position at Laval University (Quebec) between 2003 and 2005. Her research, since its beginnings, crossed an anthropological perspective and other disciplinary approaches (history, political sociology, geography, digital humanities) and a comparative and connected vision of her different fields. It allows her to grasp her main research topic: the role of memory as a resource for, on the one hand, creating solidarities based on a lived and/or transmitted past, and, on the other hand, producing mechanisms of rejection, exclusion and disaffiliation. This path is therefore characterized by the continuity of its fields of investigation, from Algeria in its links with France, to Egypt and Lebanon, and finally to the Israeli-Palestinian spaces.
