About the Event
The lives of politically active Kurdish women take shape at the intersection of migration and exile, and this talk explores how the conditions of displacement and ongoing war in Turkey’s Kurdistan region affect Kurdish women’s struggles in Europe as migrants and political subjects. Based on interviews and participant observations in Germany and France, Nisa Göksel will examine the political subjectivities and activities of Kurdish women from a transnational perspective by considering the question of how they strive to sustain their political ties and agency despite the daily difficulties of migrant/exile life.
This event was organized and hosted by Fulya Pinar, Alomran Family postdoctoral research associate in Middle East Studies.
