“Arts and Resistance” Webinar | Local Histories: Heritage and Resistance in a Sudanese Village

Geoff Emberling and Anawar Mahajoub
Wednesday, November 8, 2023
12:00-1:00 PM
As part of an effort to overcome a long history of colonial archaeology, a University of Michigan project is working collaboratively in the village of El-Kurru in Sudan to co-create representations of ancient history and local contemporary culture. In this talk, project director Geoff Emberling (Kelsey Museum) and local curator Anawar Mahajoub (MA student, MIRS) will discuss the development of a Community Heritage Center as a form of resistance to colonial and nationalist heritage narratives.

This webinar is being presented as part of the Fall 2023 “Arts and Resistance” theme semester, a partnership between the U-M Museum of Art, the U-M Arts Initiative, and the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts. To register for this event, visit
