On May, 25th of 2021, I had the pleasure to be invited by notable Prof. Kuroki Hidemitsu to take part in the research group: “Connectivity and Trust-building in Islamic Civilization.” I delivered an online workshop to over 58 online participants under the title: “Syrian Refugee Women and Girls’ Experience of the Covid-19 Lockdown.” The content of the presentation was based on my peer reviewed manuscript, published as a chapter in a book under the title: “Female Syrian Refugees amidst the Covid-19 lockdown and Lebanon’s financial collapse” by l’Harmattan, Paris (2021) and edited by Carol Mann and Atieh Asgharzadeh, under : Covid-19 from the Viewpoint of Women in the Middle East.
With the help of Prof. Toyoko Morita of Kagoshima University as a discussant, the lecture ended with a fruitful dialogue between participants and was not only well prepared, but mutually beneficial and thoroughly enjoyed by all attendees. It gave me the opportunity to reflect on points that I had not considered in my presentation and allowed me to gather constructive feedback from the audience for the purpose of self development and academic/personal growth.
