Prof. Seremetakis
at the Macedonian House

The Pan Macedonian Studies Center in New York hosted recently Professor C. Nadia Seremetakis, an innovative and well-published anthropologist with a vast array of scholarly and poetic achievements. The Center’s Director Nancy Biska introduced Dr. Seremetakis who in turn held an interdisciplinary lecture "On the Branches of Memory: Feeling, Materiality and the Environment," spanning ethnography, archaeology, physical anthropology, and environmental studies. A Q&A session followed.

Currently at the new University of Peloponnesus in the School of Humanities and Cultural Studies, Professor Seremetakis’ teaching experience includes institutions in the United States and Europe. Additionally, she has served as advisor to the Ministry of Public Health in Greece and as an advisor to the World Health Organization.

An experienced academic with more than 25 years of scholarly research and publications, Professor Seremetakis is the author of the award-winning The Last Word (1991) and The Senses Still (1996), in which she probes the boundaries of anthropological methodology, theory, and fieldwork. She is also an acknowledged poet and translator, and has been the topic of a documentary film on Greek national television.
