Shades of Occupation: Iraq After 10 Years
2013 Mellon Symposium Organized by Zainab Saleh
Friday, March 29th, 2013
John B. Hurford ’60 Center for the Arts and Humanities
Convened by Zainab Saleh, Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow and Visiting Assistant Professor of Anthropology, Haverford College
This interdisciplinary symposium will be held on the 10th anniversary of the US-led invasion of Iraq as a venue to examine multiple dimensions of the decade-long occupation. Despite the US Army’s official withdrawal from the country, the US presence in Iraq as a military, economic and political force continues to loom large. Baghdad is home to the largest US embassy in the world. An enormous body of private security and other contractors remain in the country. The institutions installed by the US-led Coalition Provisional Authority since 2003 will continue to have far-reaching impact on the future of Iraq. Apart from military operations and sectarian violence, subversive aspects of the war and occupation, and the repercussions on Iraq have received little attention: the occupation of Iraq is the United States’ Forgotten War.
The symposium approaches the invasion of Iraq in a historical and global context, whereby American empire, since the Cold War, attempted to control the politics and the resources of the country as well as the region. It brings together scholars who have been thinking, and writing, about the war from different perspectives, including oil, empire, perception of the Iraqi society, and the impact of wars on Iraq among others.
East Asian Studies and the Japanese program present the second of two films from Japan.
Ordinary Life (2013, YOSHIDA Taizô)
Friday, March 29, 4:00 Chase Auditorium
In conjunction with the upcoming exhibition of ceramic roof tiles from Hiroshima University, melted in the August 6. 1945 atomic blast. This powerful documentary film, just opening in Japan this month, follows people affected by the trauma of displacement, loss and ongoing anxiety in the face of multiple nuclear reactor meltdowns at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant north of Tokyo. Of course, these meltdowns were the result of the 3/11/11 earthquake and tsunami. Please come see what life is like on the ground for the people of Fukushima Prefecture today. As Tokyo Electric Power Co., continues to make efforts to bring the damaged reactorsback online, this is a timely and important testimony to the very real hazards presented by nuclear power plants. The film also celebrates the resilience and strength of the prefecture’s citizens, who refuse to sitby complacently and be told that they are safe.

Who Killed Sarah Stout?
There’s been a great mystery afoot on campus this winter, and the Haverford community is being called upon to help solve it. Sarah Stout, a wealthy British Quaker woman, has been found dead, presumably strangled. But the investigation of her alleged murderer, Spencer Cowper, and his accomplices has been fraught with scandal—rumored adultery, forged love letters, suicide accusations and political backstabbing—and they have been acquitted at trial. Did we mention that this murder actually took place in 1699 and that the case was never solved?
Jen Rajchel BMC ’11, who serves a dual appointment as assistant director of the Tri-Co Digital Humanities and Digital Scholarship Curator at Haverford, is reopening the case in the court of public opinion on February 28 with Who Killed Sarah Stout? This interactive exhibit, held in Magill Library’s Sharpless Gallery, is based on the holding of Haverford’s Special Collections relating to Cowper’s 1699 trial, which was one of the first to use an autopsy as evidence.
