I am a cultural anthropologist with research interests in the state, competing nationalisms, identity, and gendered dynamics of forced migration, specifically within the context of ethnic Armenian refuge-seeking women from Syria living in Armenia. I am interested in how state messages about identity impact women's conceptualizations of "home" in their perceived ancestral homeland.
