Ozlem attended the welcoming reception and the Q&A at the Swedish Research Institute of Istanbul: “Translation of words, transfer of culture,” a lively and moving discussion on collective voices, displacement, and nostalgia. Namdar Nasser (writer, poet, and translator of Persian literature) and Jesper Huor (Swedish journalist and writer, currently working on a documentary on Palmira in Syria) talked about their work and answered questions as the new writers-in-residence at the Institute.
