January 21 – Naveeda Khan: “The Call to Islam and Early Warning Systems in Bangladesh: The Mutual Absorption of the Political, Religious, and the Natural”

Naveeda Khan’s work traverses spaces of religious crisis and conflict in urban Pakistan to everyday life on shifting land and emergent perceptions of climate change in riparian Bangladesh.  Her current interest is to explore the physiognomy of the natural from within the social and the theological.  She is Associate Professor of Anthropology at Johns Hopkins University.
