Irene Calis is a political anthropologist at Rhodes University, South Africa.  She holds a PhD in anthropology from the London School of Economics & Political Science and her current book project examines the everyday, intimate workings of political oppression for rural Palestinian communities in the West Bank. The ethnographic study raises broader questions about the nature of “everyday" itself in such contexts, and of human survival.
