Kurdish Studies Series

The salience of Kurdish political, social, economic and cultural developments for the Middle East and for wider geopolitics is being increasingly reflected in the upsurge of research in this area.  

Convened by Zeynep Kaya and Robert Lowe, this series encourages dissemination and discussion of new research on Kurdish politics and society and provides a network for scholars and students with shared research interests.


Event Series

During term-time, public lectures and research seminars will be held regularly. Events are open to the public and are free of charge, unless otherwise stated.
