Congratulations to Professor Neda Maghbouleh who was recently awarded a Wall Scholars Research Award from the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies (PWIAS) at the University of British Columbia. The award is a one year residency appointment at the Institute where awarded scholars have the opportunity to develop their research centered on a particular theme in a collaborative, interdisciplinary environment. The theme for the 2021-2022 awardees is Complex Systems. Professor Maghbouleh will take her sabbatical next year as she works on her research throughout this appointment at PWIAS.

During her appointment as a Wall Scholar, Professor Maghbouleh plans to develop a multilevel theory of racialized disintegration to connect the individual migrant, family, community, and nation to supranational geopolitics in a time of crisis. Her work draws on original empirical research, and she will communicate her analyses and theory by writing her second book titled Disintegration. In addition to advancing her own research, Professor Maghbouleh looks forward to collaborating with other Wall Scholars at PWIAS.

Professor Maghbouleh is an Associate Professor of Sociology with teaching duties at the UTM campus. Her work addresses racism and immigration, with a particular interest in groups from the broad MENA region. Her research focuses on the racialization of migrants from the MENA region. These topics are explored in her book, The Limits of Whiteness, and will continue to be examined through her second book in progress Disintegration.
