KAES
 

The Kurdish people as a whole and Kurdish academic community, in particular, have suffered a tragic loss. Dr. Vera Saeedpour died of heart attack on May 30 in New York. We offer our sincere condolences to her family and the Kurdish nation as a whole.
 
Dr. Saeedpour, a preeminent scholar in the culture of Kurds, dedicated most of her productive life to presenting, preserving, and promoting Kurdish history and cultural identity with zest and gusto. As she had aptly put it in an interview, “I know the Kurds better than any Westerner living.” It would not be an exaggeration to call her the mother of Kurdish cultural studies in this continent.

"Kurdish Mothers as Artists and Peaceful Revolutionaries against Genocide through the Singing of Lullabies"

By: Soraya Fallah

 I am going to attempt to make a claim. This claim is that the Kurdish mother, not just as an individual, but as a collective entity, has played a crucial role in the perseverance of the Kurdish identity, specifically in implanting language and culture in her infant. Kurdish mothers, do this in many ways of course. I will be examining the role of songs, such as folkloric lullabies, and how they help endow the Kurdish language, culture, and identity as a whole. Knowing historical context on Kurdish question is very important in shedding light on why the Kurds have had to rely on oral history, in the form of folkloric songs and epic poems to instill their culture and forbid it from the eradication desired by external forces.
