Êvar’s multi-disciplinary practise and research is focused on Kurdish genealogies, visibility, colonial violence in archives and their relationship with the trajectory of Kurdish feminism and Kurdish womanhood. Êvar’s work is rooted in radical debates on Orientalism/othering, extending into a revelation on how qualities of coloniality and occupation erase heritage, violate or pigeon-hole; though archives exist in multiple forms and shapes, she is interested in how alternative methodologies can be applied to archival structures and modes of documentation and what that can mean for Kurdish women’s identity.
