Gozde “Burcu” Ege


Burcu is in the Interdisciplinary PhD Program in Near and Middle East Studies. The Sable-Brown fellowship helped Burcu with her research on the lives of the Palestinian refugee youth in Jordan, especially those in the camps set up by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) in Amman, Jordan. Specifically, she wanted to focus “on the lives and aspirations of Palestinian refugee youth who occupy both the humanitarian space of the camps within an increasingly neoliberal capital, Amman, whose growing inequalities further marginalize them.”
