Event details

Publisher's webpage:

Dr. Allan Hassaniyan is Lecturer at the University of Exeter.

The book is a reflection on seven decades of the Iranian Kurdish movement, and it offers a comprehensive analysis of the politicisation of national sentiments within Iran, and the connections the movement made and developed with Kurdish groups in Iraq. Looking at Kurdish-state conflict through events taking place across remote, rural and urban areas in Kurdistan, Allan Hassaniyan analyses nationalist as well as non-nationalist aspects of Kurdish politics and history, reading the evolution of Kurdish nationalism through analysing crossborder Kurdish interaction.  

Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event and Dr. Hassaniyan will be available for signings.
