Neda Maghbouleh (Sociology)

Mothers and migration

And, in the spirit of International Women’s Day, which falls on March 8, the interview with Neda is reposted because some of her research has focused on a project that specifically looks at the stress Syrian newcomer mothers face in settling in a new land.

Also with this new, third season of the VIEW to the U highlighting UTM’s "Global Perspectives," Neda discusses her research, which largely stems from her passion for Sociology, but also outlines the inspiration for her book, The Limits of Whiteness: Iranian-Americans & the Everyday Politics of Race, that was inspired, in part, by her own experience of crossing the border at Niagara Falls when she came to Canada from the US to start her academic appointment at U of T in 2013.
