I'm doing my second bachelor in visual communication. My first was in polymer engineering , also I'm having a quite interesting academic journey. I come from Iran and it's my second semester in VC and in Germnay - Mentioning it because my background has had its part on shaping my worldview and my beliefs.
for many years I'd been apolitical, even though I come from a country where you just can't ignore politics. Politic and religion are highly connected in Iran and maybe that's why I was happy ignoring them both. Only now I know it was mainly because I was privileged enough (well, you know, with our standards. I was still a women living in Iran which is kinda fucked up) to afford not learning and selfish enough not to care. So I started relatively late to explore different ideas, different worldviews and really seeing everything that is wrong in my county and the world outside of it.
In this class I'm mainly concentrating on learning about Anarchism.
also interested in socialism, intersectional feminism and anti-fascism.
