The Limits of Whiteness: Iranian Americans and the Everyday Politics of Race
Born in New York City and raised in Portland, Oregon, Neda Maghbouleh is assistant professor of sociology at University of Toronto. Her research addresses the everyday lives of racialized people, including a new study of Syrian refugees in Toronto, funded by the government of Canada’s Ministry of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship.
This event is the inaugural lecture for Center for Iranian Diaspora Studies. Under the leadership of Professor Persis Karim, the center creates a vigorous, dynamic and fresh approach to researching Iranian diaspora communities as well as showcasing their artistic and cultural contributions across the globe.
