Producing (Tribal) History: Gendered Representations of Genealogy and Warfare in Northern Syria
Based on ethnographic fieldwork and readings of local publications, this article explores the multifaceted production of tribal history in northern Syria. Focussing on the representations of genealogy and warfare, it traces how historiography is used to re-order representations of social and political relations in the area. The article explores the gendered aspects of tribal history making, suggesting that standard perceptions of this field as an exclusively male domain need to be revised. Finally, the article explores how and to what ends history as a particular mode of knowledge is constructed in the emergent genre of tribal historiography.
