Feminist tea talk
In this talk, Dr. Al-wazedi examines the spaces that record the movement of the refugee women. Many
women’s fiction depicts the conditions that refugee women face—jailed, redirected, and encampment.
These women move in boats, jails, makeshift tents, hostels, in other people’s kitchens, and yet, their
footsteps in these spaces are always temporary. Sharon Bala, Belatu Uche Okorie, and Dina Nayeri
depict these spaces and show how the women resist such spaces. They craft their own citizenship status in these temporary spaces thus giving a new definition to what it means to be a global citizen.
