Personal profile

Personal Statement

 I currently work on a Leverhulme funded interdisciplinary project that focuses on the educational experiences of young immigrants from Eastern Europe and refugees from Syria as they arrive in Glasgow, at a geopolitical juncture defined by Brexit negotiations, refugee humanitarianism, and politics of securitisation. My project employs a multi-method approach combining policy analysis, educational career interviews with migrant youth, participant observation at youth clubs, and formal interviews with teachers initiating educational projects for migrant youth. The project explores how immigrant youth re-imagine citizenship practises within transnational fields constituting their lives. Secondly, it will identify educational practises that enable reciprocal integration, social inclusion and resilient communities.        

Research Interests

My areas of specialization include: contemporary feminist theories, transnational mobilities, cultural politics and policy, and Eastern European feminisms.
