Asma Gharbi

Associate Lecturer at the National School of Architecture and Urbanism, Université de Carthage
Dr Asma Gharbi is associate lecturer at the Ecole Nationale d'Architecture et d'Urbanisme de Tunis (National School of Architecture and Urbanism), where, since 2018, she has been teaching architecture studios as well as delivering seminars. Since February 2022, she has been a member of Governance and Territorial Development research laboratory .

She is a dedicated researcher specializing in architectural morphological dynamics and their social and cultural interactions. With a keen interest in the built environment, she pursued a fellowship with the University of Liverpool focusing on the preservation and valorization of cultural heritage and architectural form.

Driven by a passion for understanding how architectural structures evolve and interact within societies, she has delved into the intricate relationship between urban morphology and cultural contexts. Her research delves into the nuanced layers of architectural evolution, exploring how built forms shape and are shaped by societal values, historical narratives, and cultural identities.

Her interdisciplinary approach bridges the realms of architecture, sociology, and cultural studies, offering valuable insights into the intricate interplay between form, function, and social meaning in urban landscapes.

Between 2010 and 2017, Asma taught urban studio at Institut supérieur des technologies de l’environnement de l’urbanisme et du bâtiment (ISTEUB) in. After obtaining her PhD in Architecture and Morphology from the Doctoral School in Architectural Sciences and Engineering of Tunis (EdSIA), she has been focusing on morphological regeneration in newly marginalized contexts. In addition to her academic work, Asma is a leading expert in the field of territorial development. Moreover, she serves as a volunteer architect with various Tunisia NGOs (Toit digne, JCI), into which she brings her expertise in heritage enhancement and territories promotion.

Since her appointment as research partner in the Heritage Borders of Engagement Network (ENGAGE) in April 2021, Asma’s research has focused on morphological landscape transformations related to urban and architectural identity, heritage management in Tunisia, and the roles that government and civic stakeholders play in it. Asma’s current research revolves around cultural identities, territories and architectural forms. Her aim is to understand where existing strategies and mechanisms of cultural heritage management fail to take into account the local dynamics of territories that have been abandoned or marginalized.

Asma’s research project for the University of Liverpool Virtual Fellowship Programme is entitled Decision-making and citizens participation in the management of El Kef’s heritage: barriers and opportunities. Asma aims to investigate, at both higher decision-making as well as grassroots level, the factors that currently hinder the exploitation of Kef’s economic and tourism potential. By interrogating current orientations in local development, heritage management and tourism promotion, and exploring El Kef people’s perceptions and aspirations with regard to the medina - the historic centre rich in Islamic, Christian and Jewish heritage - Asma aims to identify issues, requirements and opportunities that should crucially inform future decision-making for the city’s cultural heritage management and sustainable development. The methodologies used include regional-scale SWOT analysis, through which she will define the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats for El Kef’s region, policy document review in order to understand planning strategies and decision-making orientations at various levels, and identify any misalignment or lack of alignment, interviews and questionnaires with key stakeholders, with the aim to record requirements and aspirations for the future, and participant observation, to observe and record user activities and life patterns.

Atalia Omer

Professor of Religion, Conflict and Peace Studies, University of Notre Dame
Atalia Omer is Professor of Religion, Conflict, and Peace Studies at the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies and at the Keough School of Global Affairs at the University of Notre Dame. She earned her PhD in Religion, Ethics, and Politics (November 2008) from the Committee on the Study of Religion at Harvard University. Her research focuses on religion, violence, and peacebuilding, Palestine/Israel, Jewish studies, decoloniality and religion, and religion and politics. She was a 2017 Andrew Carnegie Fellow resulting in Decolonizing Religion and Peacebuilding (Oxford University Press, 2023). Conversing with decolonial scholarship across multiple fields of study, this book examines, through an extensive empirical work in Kenya and the Philippines, how and why the practices of religion and peacebuilding/development both reinforce and exceed global structural, neocolonial, and epistemic forms of violence. The book traces why a consolidation of the industry of religion and peacebuilding (or the “harmony business”), in the intersection of neoliberalism and an orientalist security discourses, disempowers religious action at the same time that it empowers religious actors. It exposes another ironic insight: “more is less,” meaning that rather than enhancing religious literacy, the “harmony business” diminishes hermeneutical horizons. Even as a growing focus in the policy world on the “global engagement with religion” bills itself as a paradigm shift away from a secularist ignorance of the causal capacities of religious actors, meanings, networks, and institutions, this increased investment in “engaging” with religion is utilitarian. It focuses much more on function or doing religion or being religious as a matter of communal boundaries rather than on content or knowing religious traditions as living and contested sites of interpretations and reimagining. Yet, the decolonial and intersectional lens cannot obscure the existence of the multiple religious actors in the global South and their participation in projects of survival, which includes investing in interreligious and intercultural peacebuilding actions. Such religious actors generate decolonial openings regardless of being firmly grounded in closed rather than hermeneutically open or fluid accounts of their religiosity and communal narratives. They should not be theorized away. Analyzing their work offers an opportunity to rethink the study of religion, violence, and peace practices, their relevance to theory, and theory’s relevance to them.

Omer’s first book, When Peace is Not Enough: How the Israeli Peace Camp Thinks about Religion, Nationalism, and Justice (University of Chicago Press, 2015) examines the way the Israeli peace camp addresses interrelationships between religion, ethnicity, and nationality, and how it interprets justice vis-à-vis the Palestinian conflict. This work scrutinizes the “visions of peace” and the “visions of citizenship” articulated by a wide spectrum of groups, ranging from Zionist to non-Zionist and secular to religious orientations.

Omer’s second solo-authored book project, Days of Awe: Reimagining Jewishness in Solidarity with Palestinians (University of Chicago Press, 2019) explores why divergences in conceptions of national identity between “homeland” and “diasporas” could facilitate the proliferation of loci of analysis and foci of peacebuilding efforts which are yet under-explored both in peace studies and specific scholarship addressing the relations between diasporas and conflict.

As a locally situated, distant issue movement, Jewish Palestine solidarity offers a grassroots critique and a transformative agenda for the local Jewish-American landscape while also critiquing Israeli policies and Zionist interpretations of Jewish identity. This book examines the intentional participation of this movement in intra-traditional work that seeks to provincialize Zion from Jewish identity and inter-traditional work that seeks to undo the intersections between Islamophobia in the U.S. and the marginalizing and silencing of lives in Palestine.

Inter-traditional work is also examined as pivotal to the movement’s efforts to deconstruct the conflation of critique of Israeli policies with anti-Semitism. Likewise, the movement participates in a broader, intersectional solidarity analysis that connects Palestinian struggles with other sites of injustice, both locally and globally, from #BlackLivesMatter to protests against the wall between the U.S. and Mexico.

Omer has also edited and co-edited multiple volumes including The Oxford Handbook of Religion, Conflict, and Peacebuilding (Oxford University Press, 2015). She has published articles in, among other venues, the Journal of the American Academy of Religion, the Journal of Religious Ethics; Soundings: An Interdisciplinary Journal; the Journal of Political Theology, the Study of Nationalism and Ethnicity, the International Journal of Peace Studies, Critical Sociology, Critical Theory of Religion, The Review of Faith and International Affairs, and Method & Theory in the Study of Religion.

Omer was awarded an Andrew Carnegie Fellowship in 2017. She is also a Senior Fellow at Harvard Divinity School’s Religion and Public Life’s Religion, Conflict, and Peace Initiative. She was the recipient of a research fellowship from the Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Studies (Fall 2011), Charlotte W. Newcombe’s Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship (2007), and Harvard University Merit Fellowship (2006). She was a doctoral fellow at the Center for the Study of World Religions at Harvard University (2002-2004) and a Graduate Associate at the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs at Harvard University (2006-2008).

Audrey H Small

Lecturer in the Department of French, Francophone and Luxembourg Studies, University of Sheffield
I graduated from the University of Aberdeen in 1997 with an MA (Hons) in French Studies, after which I went to teach English in Dakar, Senegal. My time in West Africa sharpened my interest in all things extra-hexagonal, and I returned to Aberdeen to study for a PhD on the links between publishing and literary discourses of identity in francophone African literature. I taught at Aberdeen for four years before coming to Sheffield in 2002.

PhD Candidante in Organizational Psychology, Lund University
Happiness and personality through the lens of language.

How are you?
You probably ask this question many times a day, and most of the times, the answers are not through numbers, but through words.
Using modern Language AI techniques, such as Large Language Models (LLM; the type of models behind chatbots such as ChatGPT) and Topic modelling, I research how the Language we use can help us understand happiness and personality. Specific happiness related subjects I research include everyday activities, alcohol consumption, and happiness definitions. For personality, I have worked with the Assessment of implicit motives through LLMs and the personality assessments of LLMs on social media.

I did graduate school at Lund University, was a predoc at the University of Pennsylvania, and I am doing my PhD at Oslo Metropolitan University.
I do several research projects with The World Well-Being Project, allocated at Stony Brook University, University of Pennsylvania, and Stanford University.
