Samira Marty is a PhD candidate at the Department of Social Anthropology at the University of Oslo. Her PhD thesis focuses on the unfolding of the socio-political crisis in Nicaragua and the different forms of activism that have emerged since 2018. Tracing the re-emerging German-Nicaraguan solidarity-movements and Nicaraguan protesting in Berlin, Samira’s thesis contributes to wider reflections on political conflict, temporality and state violence in revolutionary societies. Her publications include a non-fiction monograph on indigenous women's resistance in Guatemala and methodological reflections on security in the field. Previous to her PhD research, she has worked as a political consultant and researcher for several Swiss and international organizations and has volunteered with undocumented migrants and refugees in Berlin, Zürich and New York.
