External Research Fellow
Ronak Ghorbani is a PhD Candidate (ABD) in the Faculty of Environmental & Urban Change, York University. Her research focuses on diasporic Iranian women’s life histories by exploring relationships between engagement with arts, political practices, experiences of revolution and migration.
With her colleague Azar Masoumi (Carleton University) Ronak is creating an online Oral History archive on memories of the 1979 Iranian revolution (funded by a Carleton University-SSHRC Knowledge Mobilization Exchange Grant). This archive, titled Enghelab Shod [Farsi for “The Revolution Happened”] emphasizes embodied and affective dimensions of memory and aims to understand the Iranian revolution from the perspective of folks who lived through it.
