A Conference in Honor of Margaret Mills

Margaret Mills


Friday-Saturday, May 18-19, 2012

The Mershon Center for International Security Studies

1501 Neil Avenue

Organized by the Center for Folklore Studies and generously supported by the Divsion of Arts and Humanities;the Mershon Center for International Security Studies; the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures; the Department of Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies; the Center for the Study of Religion; and the Middle East Studies Center.

Professor Margaret Ann Mills, retiring in June 2012 from the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures, 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 traditional public sphere; 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.For the schedule and further information seehttp://cfs.osu.edu/activities/conferences#Mills .

To RSVP for the conference, please email Elo-Hanna Seljamaa at seljamaa.1@buckeyemail.osu.edu. Please help us by specifying your attendance at Friday's lunch, Friday's reception-dinner, and/or Saturday's lunch. Thank you!
