I just finished "Purity and Exile" by Liisa Malkki - associate professor of anthropology at Stanford [1]. After placing the massacre in historical context - discussing the long history of oppression and inequality between Hutu and Tutsi in Burundi - Malkki gets to the core of her argument: "The social and imaginative processes of the construction of nationness and identity can come to be influenced by the local, everyday circumstances of life in exile, and how spatial and social isolation of refugees can figure in these processes.

Stuff from a Ph. Student at Columbia with an interest in Africa. Sunday, June 6, Purity and Exile. I just finished "Purity and Exile" by Liisa Malkki - associate professor of anthropology at Stanford [1]. After placing the massacre in historical context - discussing the long history of oppression and inequality between Hutu and Tutsi in Burundi - Malkki gets to the core of her argument: "The social and imaginative processes of the construction of nationness and identity can come to be influenced by the local, everyday circumstances of life in exile, and how spatial and social isolation of refugees can figure in these processes.

One group was settled in a carefully planned, physically isolated refugee camp in Mishamo. The other group lived in Kigoma - a city on Lake Tanganyika - outside of any camp context and dispersed in non-refugee neighborhoods.

These two groups ascribed meanings to national identity and history, to notions of home and homeland, and to exile as a collectively experienced condition in very different ways.

The "camp refugees" were constantly engaged in the construction and reconstruction of their Hutu history as a people. The "town refugees", on the other hand, had not constructued a categorically distinct, collective identity. An interesting read; the pages were finished quickly. Chicago: University of Chicago Press.
