Neveu, Norig

Dr.

Since September 2014, Norig Neveu is a research fellow at the Ifpo, Amman. As a specialist of contemporary history, she has been conducting research for the last ten years in the Middle East, consulting various archives and doing interviews with witnesses of history. Her present research focuses on sacred topographies, religious politics and religious notables in Jordan and the Palestinian Territories between the 19th and 21st centuries. This long-term approach allows her to observe the evolution of tribal and kinship networks and confessional boundary building processes in the region. She has published several articles on local pilgrimages, sacred topographies, religious tourism and its impact on local societies. Since 2008, she has contributed to research programmes focusing on borders and mobility. Between 2010 and 2014, she taught bachelor’s and master’s students at several French universities (Aix-Marseille, INALCO and Paris 8).
