گەلاوێژ 2021

With the urgency of transnational organizing, we would like to explore the pedagogies of translating (beyond) borders. We are often trapped in cycles of violence that limit our political action to “responding” to dominant orders and realities. Our radical potential is therefore bound to an existence that can only be articulated in relation to the systems of power we seek to dismantle. These impasses are multiple: our knowledges are provincialized; our contexts are treated as data; our bodies are ruled by necropolitics, border controls, and biological determinism; our languages are delegitimized. How do we leave the languages, contexts, and fields that we are assigned?

خاکەلێوە 2021

The writing circle will meet online on a weekly basis over the period of two months. During the first two meetings (April 10 and 17), we will alternate between discussions and writing time. The discussions will be a space of solidarity where we can go over our relationship with our writing as we navigate isolation and precarity, and collectively make space for our practice.

خاکەلێوە 2021

We welcome articles, texts, and art pieces that archive the way we experienced the multiple crises of 2020 and the realities and conditions that led to it, in Lebanon and transnationally, from an intersectional and queer framework.

بەفرانبار 2020

Kohl is looking for pieces that archive the ongoing revolts from a queer, feminist, and intersectional perspective. We would like to reflect, collectively and across borders, on what constitutes a revolution, and account for the invisible labor and histories that go into a revolution in the making. 

سەرماوەز 2020

Multiple terminologies were recently introduced into Arabic to convey feminist theories. As a result, the dilemmas around maintaining and conveying gendered issues in Arabic were not solely grammatical. They were also and especially concerned with these terminologies’ compatibility with, and efficiency in conveying, gendered issues in modern theories in Arabic as well as the multitudes of dialects spoken in the region.

ڕەزبەر 2020

For this issue of Kohl, we are looking for papers that understand queer theory as part of our histories, collective memory, and feminist futures. We are interested in challenging the boundaries of where theory originates from, and disrupting the notion that our queer knowledges are consumable rather than creative and productive.

گەلاوێژ 2019

For this issue of Kohl, we are looking for papers centered in feminist, queer, and intersectionality theories that articulate the tensions between different forms of organizing in the MENA: institutional, non-governmental, and grassroots. We are also interested in papers that look at tensions within feminist movements in the MENA as possibilities for accountability and movement building.
