"When Wounds Travel: Ecologies of War and Healthcare East of the Mediterranean" Lecture at Arizona History Museum

March 31, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Omar Dewachi, associate professor of medical anthropology at Rutgers University, will give the 29th Annual Sabbagh lecture: "When Wounds Travel: Ecologies of War and Healthcare East of the Mediterranean." Dewachi will reflect on some of the human and environmental costs of decades of violence in Iraq and the broader region. Taking the “wound” as an analytic, Dewachi will share insights from his ethnographic and public health fieldwork on the intersections of war, displacement, and the changing therapeutic landscape of medical and humanitarian care.
