Details about the discussion - 

Our speaker for this meeting is Dr. Muna Adem from the Department of Sociology. Dr. Adem will be discussing her work centered around "What Makes a Citizen? Contemporary Immigration and the Boundaries of Citizenry." 

Details about the speaker - 

Muna Adem is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Maryland. Her research lies at the intersection of race, ethnicity, and immigration. More specifically, Adem is interested in examining how immigration-driven diversity influence race relations, group divisions and ethnoracial inequalities both in the US and Europe. Her current projects examine (1) the ways in which race and immigration status shapes (mis)trust and cooperation at the micro level, (2) the ways in which organizations and elite actors contribute to the (in)stability of ethnoracial and stratification systems, (3) attitudes toward citizenship ideologies, national and ethnoracial identities in the US and Europe, and (4) perceived discrimination and anti-black distancing among immigrant groups. To answer her research questions, Adem employs several strategies, including survey experiments and behavioral experiments, network and text analysis and mixed methods.

Location IN PERSON: 2101C Morrill Hall, Bianchi Room
