An interview with Daniel on returning…..
The following series of posts is based on an interview conducted with Romy Lynn Attieh. I’ve known Romy since I arrived in Lebanon, and in that time I’ve come to see her as a great friend, an intrepid research assistant, a colleague, and a sister. She has followed my story since day one; our stories overlap in interesting ways: We were both acculturated American, and have both experienced Lebanon as a space of “re-entry” as it were.
The interview was conducted for a paper that Romy wrote entitled: “Exploring Kinship and Gender in the Return Narratives of Transnational Adoptees Born in Lebanon” for a class with Dr. Rosemary Sayegh called “Oral History and Gender”, in the Anthropology department at AUB.
