It was truly an unforgettable experience. I got to work on the correlation of political repression/regional authoritarianism/terrorism and sexuality. I [learned] various new information through case studies, political theory readings, French interviews, comparative analysis, literature, and psychology papers. I was very fortunate to learn through Karim Sadjadpour’s passion, expertise, and his insightful perspectives not only concerning his book project, but especially concerning the Middle East.
