New Blog launched
The sociological sub-project of submodule 2c has recently started its own academic blog. hair:y_less masculinities is a sub-project of “Iran and Beyond – Breaking the Ground for Sustainable Scholarly Collaboration (IRSSC)”. It is led by one of the Co-PIs of the IRSSC project, Dr. Melike Şahinol, who is Senior Research Fellow and head of research field “Human, Medicine and Society” at the Orient-Institut Istanbul. Burak Taşdizen is Research Associate in the research field “Human, Medicine and Society” within hair:y_less masculinities and coordinator of IRSSC.
Şahinol and Taşdizen are looking at the practices of male hair removal and transplantation practices in the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Republic of Turkey. As part of their sociological research on hair and masculinities, they are currently looking for men from Turkey or Iran to talk to about their experiences in both hair / beard / moustache transplants and bodily hair removals.
