Joanne Nucho is an anthropologist and filmmaker. Her interests include urban space, specifically the relationship between the built environment (things like bridges, roads, telecommunications, networks and electricity infrastructures) and processes of subjectivity formation and political action.
Her book, Everyday Sectarianism in Urban Lebanon: Infrastructure, Public Services and Power (Princeton University Press) will be released in November 2016. Her writings have also appeared in Jadaliyya and the Middle East Research and Information Project.
As a filmmaker, she is interested in experimental non-fiction and essay films. Mapping Bourj Hammoud, an outgrowth of her enthnographic film work in Lebanon, explores memory, narrative, and visual mapping.
