Grant Recipient: Souad Osseiran
Souad Osseiran awarded two student fieldwork awards to cover her expenses during fieldwork in Istanbul. During the fieldwork, I undertook participant observation and interviews with various Syrian interlocutors based in Istanbul trying to make their way to Europe. In the summer of 2013, I presented at a workshop organized by the BIAA entitled Borders and Boundaries. The workshop has resulted in a publication. I am a PhD candidate at Goldsmiths College where I am writing up my thesis results.
