Dr. Joyce Dalsheim is a cultural anthropologist who earned her doctorate at The New School for Social Research in New York. Her work interrogates some of the social and political categories through which everyday life is navigated. It focuses on questions of identity and conflict, religion and the secular, nationalism, citizenship, sovereignty, and colonialism. Looking at the work of historical representations in contemporary conflict, she reconceptualized such conflicts by considering the ways historical events are variously imagined, and how alternatives to history itself might act as a framework for understanding conflict.
