Congratulations to Sara Hormozinejad, second year PhD student in sociology, for receiving the R.F. Harney Graduate Research Fellowship in Ethnic, Immigration, and Pluralism Studies at the Munk School of Global Affairs & Policy. The Harney Fellowship offers funding to advanced graduate students conducting research in areas related to citizenship, migration, and diversity.
Under the supervision of Professor Patricia Landolt, Sara examines the elastic boundaries of membership and belonging associated with international migration and settlement in her research. Her SSHRC-funded dissertation project investigates the puzzling return migration from the Global North to the Global South to shed light on the complexities of the migrant integration process and to reveal nuances in migrants' experiences of belonging/non-belonging and inclusion/exclusion in socially diverse receiving societies such as Canada. Sara received her BA in Anthropology from the University of Calgary, and her MA in Anthropology from the University of Toronto.
