Clémence Vendryes

Geographer, freehand mapmaker and lover of walk-friendly graveyards of all countries and all religions (despite a tendency to focus on monotheism).

After a master degree in geography in Lyon and two fieldworks on the Jewish, Christian and Muslim graveyards of Jerusalem and Istanbul, she begins a PhD in human geography and political anthropology at Aix-Marseille.

In the framework of necropolitics, the Palestinian graveyards are spatial and narrative ressources for the people, but also for the political and religious agents. Therefore the tombs become the target of a post-mortem war disturbing the peace of the deads waiting for eternity.
