A Talk By Neda Maghbouleh: The Limits of Whiteness

October 25, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Free Addmission

Diaspora Arts Connection and the Center for Iranian Diaspora Studies at San Francisco State University present: Dr. Neda Maghbouleh’s talk about her new book, The Limits of Whiteness: Iranian Aemricans and the Everyday Politics of Race.

In this talk, based on her new book The Limits of Whitness (2017, Stanford University Press), sociologist Neda Maghbouleh shares the curious, under-theorized story of how Iranian Americans move across a white/not-white color line. By contextualizing ethnographic data with neglected historical and legal evidence, she offers new evidence for how a “white” American immigrant group can become “brown,” and what such a transformation says about race in North America today. 

Born in New York City and raised in Portland, Oregon, Neda Maghbouleh is Assistant Professor of Sociology at the 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, Ministry of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship.

This talk is free and open to the public.
