My research focuses on the forms taken by social activism in dealing with the past and addressing unresolved legacies of the civil war (1975-1990) in Lebanon. With a focus on three dimensions of memory (personal, collective and as an outcome of groups’ actions), objects, artefacts and pictures, this project seeks to understand the roles of memory narratives in shaping activists’ involvement in social actions, impacting the state's narratives, as well as those of the Lebanese population at large. This project is fully funded by TECHNE/AHRC and the University of Brighton.‬
