I had the honor to interview Dr. Haidar Khezri, who is joining the Kurdish Political Studies Program (KPSP) as Resident Senior Fellow at the University of Central Florida. Haidar will work closely with us researchers at KPSP. Born in Iranian Kurdistan, Haidar holds a Ph.D. in comparative literature from Damascus University in Syria, and a M.A. in comparative literature from Tarbiat Modares University in Tehran, Iran. He is a scholar of Kurdish, Persian and Arabic languages, literatures and cultures and comparative literature. During his time at UCF he will be working on a book project on Yazidi women that have been captured by the Islamic State (ISIS).
