Graduate Student Anthropology The College of Lib Arts & Sci
I am a PhD Student at School of Human Evolution and Social Change at Arizona State University. My specialization is in Socio cultural Anthropology. Particularly I am interested in contemporary socio-political contexts characterized by racialization and marginalization of immigrants in the destination countries, resulting in migrants’ growing sense of marginalization and exclusion. Having lived in multiple countries around the world, my research is based on my very personal experiences and interests. By comparing the experiences of Bangladeshi female migrants in USA and Qatar, I will explore the socio-cultural structures and processes that shape migrant women’s real-life experiences in my project. Previously, I have earned an MA in Anthropology at California State University Los Angeles, where I studied the reason behind the exceptionally higher rates of domestic violence against Bangladeshi immigrant women in Southern California. Apart from studying, I love travelling, photography and cooking different types of ethnic foods.
