  • Orange Life Jackets: Materiality and Narration in Lesvos, One Year after
           the Eruption of the “Refugee Crisis”
    • During summer 2015 more than 500.000 refugees reached the shore of the island of Lesvos, Greece, seeking a safe passage to Europe. Refugees were travelling packed into plastic dinghies by smugglers. They all wore life-jackets that were discarded upon arrival. This article discusses the way these life-jackets were used both by locals and widely in Europe, through their materiality, as symbolic material of two distinct and conflicting representations of the refugees and the refugee issue.2017-01-30T10:12:20Z

  • Where are the limits of Knossos'
    • This text explores the preparation and realization of the experimental workshop Where are the limits of Knossos?, which took place in April 2016 on Lesvos, an island along the border between Greece and Turkey. The workshop sought to form a space and time for people - regardless of citizenship status - to come together through a multi-lingual approach around issues of contemporary archaeology. Beyond food and shelter, many people seeking asylum today in Lesvos, and in Greece generally, live “lives on hold,” and excluded from educational and social participation while in or out of the camps. Aiming to form a possibility to temporarily undo this social exclusion, the workshop attempted to open space to confront and re-work in practice an often-tokenistic treatment of refugees. Where are the limits of Knossos? combined pre-existing digital games of the Knossos iGuide series - translated into Arabic and Farsi – and performative games that played with the group’s language “barrier”. It was the second of the workshop series Archaeological Workouts initiated in Athens, Greece in January 2015.2016-09-15T09:11:44Z

  • The 1947 Partition of India and Pakistan: Migration, Material Landscapes,
           and the Making of Nations
    • The nation state, as a concept, relies on an assumption of boundedness—on the idea that governable units are culturally unified and locationally discrete. Displacement often works to make this boundedness a material reality. Demographics are reshuffled in accordance with essentialist understandings of cultural origins. Yet, displacement also exposes the impossibility of a national sovereignty based neatly on historic spatiality. Even if people are ‘going home’ to what is seen to be an ancestral homeland, they are leaving familiar landscapes shaped by their own personal pasts. In this paper, we discuss the 1947 Partition of India and Pakistan as an example. We describe the yet contended uses and meanings of built landscapes associated with out-migrating Partition refugees on both sides of the border. Through this example, we assert that displacement is not a singular moment, but a long, drawn out negotiation of access and national belonging. Thus, archaeologies of forced and undocumented migration must not begin and end in discussion of hardship-filled border crossings and momentary homelessness. We must also consider the anxiety of post-journey existence within material landscapes that evidence the recent and long-standing occupations of others.2016-09-15T09:03:20Z

  • “We Palestinian Refugees” – Heritage Rites and/as the Clothing of
           Bare Life: Reconfiguring Paradox, Obligation, and Imperative in
           Palestinian Refugee Camps in Jordan
    • Our joint research addresses the complex role of heritage in selected Palestinian refugee camps in Jordan. Informed by the ‘We Refugee’ theses of Arendt (1943) and Agamben (1995) we see these ‘heritage ethnographies’ as a means to explore the paradoxes confronted by refugees as subject to both a ‘bio-political rites of passage’ that consigns them to ‘spaces of exception’ as ‘homo sacre’ and ‘bare life’ and as simultaneously obligated to the imperative of being the ‘vanguard of their people’. Our interest is in the ‘lived experiences’ of refugee communities vis-à-vis their perspectives and reflections on heritage which we argue characterise a potent ‘popular heritage rites’.
      We see these ‘heritage rites’ as activated heritage forms and powerful ritual acts of communion, magical thinking and wish-fulfilment that create new ‘factness’ and ‘realities’ on the ground. Thus articulated through objects (domestic-personal mementoes and souvenirs) connecting people to the Palestinian ‘lost homeland’ as cosmic centre/axis mundi, or via public art/ murals and as sensoriums synonymous with the preparation and ingestion of traditional food. We explore how not only traditional performances of dabke dancing but new media of rap and film-making form a fundamental part of this complex context. The Palestinian refugee voices cited in this paper see the ‘thobe’ - embroidered Palestinian dress - as best encompassing their understanding of heritage, similarly ‘we/us’, as heritage critics and contemporary archaeologists, should embrace a paradigm shift that re-situates heritage within a theory of subjectivity and recognise the efficacy of popular heritage rites to ‘clothe’ ‘bare life’ and thus to empower persons not just in the future but in the present, and thereby take on the complexities and paradoxes that being human means especially in conditions of extremis.2016-09-15T09:04:11Z

  • Surveilling Surveillance: Countermapping Undocumented Migration in the
           USA-Mexico Borderlands
    • This paper examines how mapping technology is central to the operation of the United States Border Patrol security apparatus on the US/Mexico Border, and explores how the very same mapping technology can be used in critique this security project. Drawing on the concept of counter-mapping, we use spatial data collected by the Undocumented Migration Project – a long-term anthropological project aimed at understanding various elements of the violent social process of clandestine migration between Latin America and the United States – to critique the spatial ideology of PTD and the technological conditions of its production.2016-09-15T09:07:57Z

  • Place making in Non-places: Migrant Graffiti in Rural Highway Box Culverts
    • This paper describes particular material phenomenon resulting from the mass movement of undocumented migrants across the border from Mexico into Arizona, with a particular focus on migrant graffiti panels found hidden beneath rural highways. I use Marc Auge’s (2006) conceptualization of ‘non-places’ as a framework for seeking to understand the meaning behind the material impact of clandestine and undocumented migration alongside and underneath the otherwise sterile spaces of official mass transit. This paper interrogates the weight and meaning behind the actions of so-called ‘illegitimate’ or ‘illegal’ migrant travelers as they build history and create a sense of place in the non-places of the borderlands, all while evading the United States border security.2016-09-15T09:25:27Z

  • Lessons from the Bakken Oil Patch
    • This article summarizes the recent work of the North Dakota Man Camp Project to understand the largely undocumented migrants arriving in the Bakken Oil Patch for work. It argues that efforts to document short-term labor in the Bakken exposes particular challenges facing the archaeology of the modern world ranging from the ephemerality of short-term settlements to the hyper-abundance of modern objects. The use of photography, video, interviews, and descriptions produced an abundant archive of archaeological ephemera that in some ways parallels the modern character of temporary workforce housing. The final section of this article offers some perspectives on how work in the Bakken oil patch can inform policy, our understanding of material culture in the modern world, and the role of the discipline in forming a shared narrative.2016-09-15T09:05:20Z

  • Empty Migrant Rooms: An Anthropology of Absence through the Camera Lens
    • The article explores "empty migrant rooms" in Central Albania and their photographic image as seen through an anthropology of absence. In which way can a dialogic work between ethnographer and photographer reveal the local meanings of such spaces as lieux de mémoire commenting on temporary absences and prospective presences? The authors explore the local terminology, the affective care and the social interaction generated by and around such rooms. It is argued that such spaces are not only fluctuating between the material and the immaterial, but are also characterized by emotional ambiguities. Their local relevance is referred to as "absence signifiers", as material substitutes for physical bodies of flesh and blood, as "memory boxes" of the immaterial. The article also discusses ethical questions which concern the very nature and the preservability of "migrant's traces".2016-09-15T09:06:28Z

  • Abandoned Refugee Vehicles “In the Middle of Nowhere”: Reflections on
           the Global Refugee Crisis from the Northern Margins of Europe
    • Vehicles abandoned by multinational refugees during the winter 2015–2016 in northern Finnish Lapland’s border checkpoints represent an offshoot of the ongoing global refugee crisis on the so-called “Arctic Route” to Europe via Russia. In the summer 2016 this material reminder of refugee mobility vanished almost totally, as the vehicles were auctioned in a show for promoting Lapland tourism. This photo-essay highlights and discusses some of the manifold aspects connected to this flow of refugees, including, for instance, the ethical concerns of trivializing refugee issues intertwined with a host of global larger-scale matters, or using their material heritage for stimulating recreational mobility in these marginalized northern regions.2016-09-15T09:09:22Z

  • The Garden of Refugees
    • Every garden needs to be tendered, and needs a caretaker who knows about the cycles and moods of nature. It is hard to conceive that refugees may have anything to do with gardens, as they are always on the move. In this essay I will examine gardens and refugees. Gardens are not only ecological phenomena but also the articulation of ideas, places and action. They can be places that express the power of humanity over natural circumstances, the projection of an idealized order, or a place of seclusion and escape. That is the reason why gardens are a powerful trope, and that is also why they are sites of entrapment in societies that simultaneously incite and estrange the refugee. I will show that gardens are places in which refugees define some control over their lives, but also where they are rejected. I argue that the conflictive encounters that take place in gardens are better understood when we see them as workplaces, sites in which people produce goods to provide for themselves and their families, and to supply the market. In the end I will defend that the ambiguity of the garden conjures an invitation to us archaeologists: an invitation to glance beyond the narratives of victimhood that reinforce the estrangement of the refugees, and to see the transitory materialities of their lives as mirrors of our own societies.2016-09-15T09:05:49Z

  • Reframing the Lampedusa Cross: The British Museum’s Display of the
           Mediterranean Migrant Crisis
    • In the fall of 2015, the British Museum acquired the Lampedusa Cross, a cross of the Latin type crafted from wood salvaged from a migrant vessel which wrecked off of the coast of Lampedusa in 2013, killing nearly two thirds of the 566 people on board. The Musuem has displayed the object since December 2015 as a testament to the ongoing Mediterranean migrant crisis and a physical manifestation of the “suffering and hope” experienced by those making the journey. Questions must be raised however, about the appropriateness of this particular object as representative of the crisis and whether it obscures, rather than promotes, the experiences of migrants and the European response to their plight.2016-09-15T09:10:29Z

  • What Anchors the Tu Do'
    • A 1970s Vietnamese refugee boat, the Tu Do, exhibited at a maritime museum in Sydney, commemorates Australia’s decision to open its borders to those fleeing the aftermath of the Vietnam War. What concerns me is the absence in the museum’s interpretive material of any reference to the contemporary interdiction at sea of asylum seekers attempting to reach Australia. This means the Tu Do is discursively quarantined from its companion objects, those hundreds of refugee boats turned back from Australia’s border in recent years. In asking ‘What anchors the Tu Do?’, in asking what prevents it drifting on a current of similitude to those other boats, I bring into question the whole field of migration heritage as it is practiced in Australia and beyond. Immured as this field is in methodological nationalism, it seems not to be far-fetched to suggest that heritage practice be considered alongside other practices of border maintenance.2016-09-15T09:08:42Z

  • “Heritage on Exile”: Reflecting on the Roles and Responsibilities of
           Heritage Organizations towards Those Affected by Forced Migration
    • This short contribution is a simple reflection on the current refugee crisis, grounded in an active interest in the contributions heritage organisations can or should make towards ameliorating life-changing impacts on people directly affected by situations beyond their control. It also reflects on a career working within the UK heritage sector that can appear to me sometimes rather detached from contemporary life, or slow to respond to it. While recognising the importance of heritage in post-war reconstruction, this paper concerns the people themselves, forced to escape conflict and seek safe haven elsewhere at the moment of crisis, when they are at their most vulnerable, disorientated, traumatised and isolated. They, it seems to me, are the immediate concern. Post-war reconstruction (or debates about whether this is appropriate) can follow later.2016-09-15T09:11:13Z
