A Conference in Honor of Margaret Mills
Organized by the Center for Folklore Studies of the Ohio State University

Friday-Saturday, May 18-19, 2012

The Mershon Center for International Security Studies
1501 Neil Avenue
Columbus Ohio 43201

Professor Margaret Mills, retiring in June 2012 from the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures of the Ohio State University, has made major contributions to the study of women’s oral narrative, traditional pedagogies, women in contemporary Afghanistan, and the folklore of the Persian-speaking world and South Asia. She has helped us to think about the rhetorical dimension of oral traditions; the gendering of religious experience; the partitioning of the traditional public sphere into gendered and performative situations; how literacies and pedagogies are mobilized to form political identities; how individual and collective expressive repertoires respond to war and displacement.

This conference assembles some of her former students and longterm colleagues to discuss new developments in these lines of research.
