Moving Biography is a one-week international Summer School convened by LAWHA/Orient-Institut Beirut, the American University of Beirut (AUB) and the Global (De)Centre. It will take place in Beirut/Lebanon from 1 to 8 June 2022. Moving Biography brings together different perspectives to question disciplinary assumptions and decenter life writing. It focuses on three main themes: (1) questions of data (2) the act of creation, and (3) the importance of the social and historical context of biographies. Funded by the Volkswagen Foundation and bringing together an interdisciplinary group of students and faculty, Moving Biography is organised around a combination of plenary talks, working sessions, and workshops.
