The second Kurdish Studies Conference organised by LSE and the University of Sheffield is on Wednesday 22 - Thursday 23 May 2024. 

This interdisciplinary event, hosted at the University of Sheffield, builds on the inaugural conference at LSE in 2023 and is organised by the Kurdish Studies Series at the LSE Middle East Centre and the Department of Politics and International Relations at the University of Sheffield.  

The Kurdish Studies Series encourages dissemination and discussion of new research on Kurdish politics and society and provides a network for scholars, students and all others with related research interests. Over the past six years, the series has hosted 19 public events and published nine monographs and edited volumes as part of the I.B. Tauris/Bloomsbury Kurdish Studies Series. The conference is supported by Atlantic Fellows
