Book Launch: Considering the Women

Thursday, November 26, 2015 - 14:15

On November 25, 2015, AUIS English literature Professor Choman Hardi launched her second collection of poems Considering the Women that explores the equivocal relationship between immigrants and their homeland, as well as the breakdown of an intermarriage, and the plight of women in an aggressive patriarchal society and as survivors of political violence. The book’s central sequence, Anfal, draws on Choman Hardi’s post-doctoral research on women survivors of genocide in Kurdistan. 

The launch was held on November 25 to coincide with the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and Girls. AUIS students, participating in the global "Orange the World" campaign, also gave a brief talk about elimination of gender violence and held some interesting activities around the event.
