Peasants, poppies, and popular expressions of Turkish nationalism amid America's 'war on drugs'

Kyle T. Evered, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Geography
Department of Geography, Environment, & Spatial Sciences
Michigan State University

Trained to study geographies of the Middle East and North Africa and the former Soviet states of Eurasia, most of Kyle Evered's research deals with topics associated with geographies of Turkey and its neighboring states.  In particular, he has published on the cultural and historical geographies, political geographies, and cultural ecologies of the country and its wider regions.  Some of his recent research concerns include geographies of the opium poppy, of health and wellbeing, and identity-place constructs (such as nationalism, territoriality, and regionalism).

COVID-19 has significantly impaced many families and students on a global scale. With the travel ban or visa restrictions that have been issued, some MSU students were unable to return to school or home, feeling anxious or uncertain about their future, isolated and unable to connect. 
With instances where international students have been the target of xenophobia on campus, we would like to provide a supportive space for international students to conncet, share and support each other. 

This group is a supportive space for international students, meeting for eight weeks starting Friday, September 25th, and ending November 13th, 2020. 

This group is open to undergraduate and graduate international students of any gender identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, religion or nationality. 

This group is specifically for international students who are currently residing in Michigan.

Group screening is required. For more information, contact Zen Zhong by email at zhongz(at)msu.edu
