About Dr Choman Hardi

Dr Choman Hardi is a Kurdish poet, scholar, translator and painter. Her collection, Considering the Women (Bloodaxe, 2015) was shortlisted for the Forward Prize. The effect of Choman's poetic voice is a calmness of tone and plain-spoken language, which act as containers for the civilised sadness of one who has seen too much inhumanity.

Choman is also the founding director of the Center for Gender and Development Studies at American University in Sulaimani, Iraqi Kurdistan.
