Kurdish Migration conference, Middlesex University

15 – 16 June 2017

The second Kurdish Migration conference was held at Middlesex University, London, convened by Dr Janroj Keles and Dr Alessio D’Angelo.

Gulan’s Creative Director Richard Wilding gave an illustrated presentation titled ‘The impact of ethnic and religious persecution and displacement on cultural identity and heritage in Iraqi Kurdistan‘.  He focused on the heritage of displaced and persecuted ethnic and religious minorities in Northern Iraq and the Kurdistan region, in particular the Yezidi, Christian and Jewish communities.  Richard illustrated his lecture with his photographs taken during visits to Iraqi Kurdistan with Gulan between 2013 and 2017.
