Bridget Guarasci. Roundtable at the Portland Center for Public Humanities
Bridget Guarasci. Roundtable at the Portland Center for Public Humanities

Bridget Guarasci completed her Ph.D. in anthropology at the University of Michigan earlier this year. Her dissertation Reconstructing Life: Environment, Expertise, and Political Power in Iraq's Southern Marshes 2003-2007 focused on the relationship of foreign investment, economic liberalization, and the rise of environmentalism in Iraq at the height of violence during the recent war. She will return to Jordan this fall as a postdoctoral fellow to investigate a growing regional environmentalism, its relationship to foreign-led development campaigns, and the sharpening economic inequality this partnership produces for communities in areas of ecological concern.

In October 2011 she participated at a Roundtable organized by the Portland Center for Public Humanities and the Middle East Studies Center.
