AboutNilou is a doctoral student in the department of English at the University of Texas at San Antonio. Her research focuses on digital media activism, transnational feminism and gender violence in Iran, with a global perspective that seeks to establish connections with other feminist movements, such as those in the borderlands between the U.S. and Mexico. Through her research, she aims to shed light on the experiences of those affected by gender violence in Iran, a population that often faces systemic discrimination and oppression. Her academic work seeks to bridge the gap between academia and the broader society. She is committed to making her research accessible to non-academic audiences. By disseminating knowledge and raising awareness about issues like gender violence and feminism, she hopes to inspire action and change in the wider community.
