Tamar Shirinian

Tamar Shirinian is a cultural anthropologist whose work explores the connections between sexuality, gender, intimacy, and political economy. Her research and many of her political and creative commitments are in the Republic of Armenia. Inspired by and engaged with queer, psychoanalytic, anti-colonial, and Marxian thought, Tamar takes up research and theory as forms of reimagining and thus remaking worlds. Aside from theoretical and ethnographic work, Tamar is also drawn to collaborations on visual art, ethnographic fiction, and poetry as modes of praxis.
