Personal profile


A qualitative sociologist, my main areas of interest are migration, gender, social theory, globalization, and cultural analysis. My first research project looked at the Lebanese Diaspora in New York, Montreal and Paris where I studied diasporic forms of identification, communal attachments and cultural expression. I also studied the children of immigrants (the second-generation) within a comparative perspective as I look at Mexicans in the US, North Africans in France, and Turks in Sweden, Denmark and Germany. Most recently, my work focuses on Syrian refugees' experiences with displacement and integration, and media representation of the refugee crisis.
