About me

Kimia was a Research Assistant on the LSE Middle East Centre project 'The Lived Experience of Being Muslim among British Youth of Middle Eastern Origin'. She holds an MSc Empires, Colonialism and Globalisation from the LSE. Her dissertation research focuses on the transformation of gender roles from 1925 to 1941 in Iran and its relationship with carcerality and modernity. Before joining the LSE Middle East Centre, she completed a funded research project at the University of Warwick on 'Memory of al-Andalus and (mis)representations of the past'.Kimia’s interests and research broadly include transnational student movements across the Middle East, oral histories on BDS and student organising, and how organisers presently interact with histories of solidarity, repression and gender in anti-colonial movements.
