THE LIMITS OF WHITENESS: IRANIAN AMERICANS AND THE EVERYDAY POLITICS OF RACE
In this talk, based on her new book The Limits of Whiteness (2017, Stanford University Press), 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.

Abouth the author: 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.

Organized by the Persian program and cosponsored by the Department of World Languages & Literatures, the Department of Sociology, and the Middle East Studies Center
