Conserving Cultural Heritage: The Resilience of Forcibly Displaced Syrian Artisans in Jordan

2017

This project explores the resilience, vulnerabilities and identities of Syrian male refugee artisans residing in Jordan (since 2011). This will be achieved through considering:
1. The impact of displacement and the arising marginalised masculinities, on the resilience of neo-patriarchal displaced Arab communities. 2. The impact of engaging in cultural heritage crafts. 3. The impact of cultural appropriation through ‘made in Jordan’ Syrian cultural heritage products. 4. How skilled, refugee artisans overcome social, economic and political vulnerabilities, and respond to economic and social upheaval. 5. How Syrian refugee artisans become ‘resilient’ through their artisan entrepreneurship
