Bio: Maya Mikdashi is a Mellon Postdoc at the Institute for Research
on Women and the Department of Women and Gender Studies at
Rutgers University. She received her PhD in Anthropology from
Columbia University. Her upcoming book length manuscript entitled "
Sex and Sectarianism: Secularism, Secularity and War in
Contemporary Lebanon," is both an archival and ethnographic study
of the regulation of sexual and religious difference within secular
political systems. Maya works at the intersection of legal
anthropology, feminism, queer theory, critical race studies, and
theories of sovereignty, secularism and religion. She has worked on a
number of documentary film projects, and continues to edit and write
for Jadaliyya, an ezine that she co-founded and that is centered on
critical approaches to studying the transnational Middle East.
