Language Study: Kurdish

Language Study

Parsa (class of 2019): "I am studying social and cultural anthropology. This summer, thanks to the generous funding from the Iranian Studies Program, I am attending a second-year Kurdish program at Indiana University. After my language program, I will be conducting field-work among Kurdish-Americans in Nashville, Tennessee for my honors thesis research. My research is concerned with the linguistic diversity among Kurdish-Americans and explores the different ways in which they use language to navigate through social spaces. I am looking forward to using my language skills in Nashville and speaking Kurdish with others!"
