Talking Texts is a thinking/feeling space for research on the Gulf. A select group of academics and researchers reflect on their positionality, research process, and the politics of knowledge production. In this interview, Alanoud Al-Sharekh, a Kuwaiti researcher, academic, activist and feminist shared her experience of connecting feminist work in the academy with her advocacy journey as the founding member of Abolish 153, a campaign calling to end honor killings in Kuwait. We explore her feminist research and practice in Kuwait, the challenges of advocating for legislative change on gender issues, and the politics of academic knowledge production about gender in the gulf.
