1.ONLINE Book Introduction “Familiar Futures: Time, Selfhood, and Sovereignty in Iraq” by Sara Pursley, Centre for Middle East Studies, Brown University, AMEWS, 15 April 2021, 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm EST
This book considers how the country’s creation under British mandate rule in 1920 through the 1958 revolution to the first Ba’th coup in 1963 reshaped Iraqi everyday habits, desires, and familial relations. Future-oriented discourses about the importance of sexual difference to Iraq’s modernization worked paradoxically, deferring demands for political change in the present and reproducing existing capitalist relations.
