Following the studies day “Stateless peoples” organized last march, we invite you to a new meeting organized with researchers and activists whose research is linked to the situations of Kurdistan, Kashmir and Palestine, this tuesday, december 7, 2021.
The meeting will discuss research both in transdisciplinary crossings and across borders, in the actuality of Kurdish studies of Jineolojî with in particular the presentation of the Jineolojî Journal, and in reflections around the situated knowledge of transnational struggles and feminisms and for justice and freedom in Kurdistan, Kashmir and Palestine.

The political and colonial modernity of the unicity of the State, nation, history, identity and language has enabled the States to organize for their benefit the relations of social production, class, gender, origin etc. thus generated as many borders.
We want to offer perspectives through them that relate to other forms of history and narrative, capable of questioning the terms of research, inside and outside of existing states, where living conditions and the differentiation of imposed statuses, the absence of rights, have given rise to the aspiration for new social and political projects open to transnational solidarity movements.
