Thesis title:
Body and Sexuality: Narratives of two generations of Iranian women (working title)
Internal Supervisors

PhD Research

In this research my aim is to collect narratives of two generations of  Iranian women; whom were born in 1950s and whom were born in 1980s, about parts of their lives which have been publicly silenced and sanitized. I want to see how their personal experiences such as puberty, sexual relation, and conception of feminine beauty have shaped and transformed through the political and social changes in recent history of the Iranian society
