Job title: 
CLAS Graduate Affiliate
Department of Anthropology
Emily is a third-year PhD student in Sociocultural Anthropology. Her work focuses on everyday engagements with memory-making practices in contemporary Peru, particularly in Quechua-speaking communities. She looks at how forms of ordinary art inform traumatic memory, accrue social and political meaning, and affectively contest prior narratives of reconciliation.
