Dr. Roozbeh Shirazi, “Schooled Towards What Ends? Contingent Hospitality and Contested Belonging in the Afterlives of the War on Terror”

November 12, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Drawing upon his extensive research with youth in secondary schools in Jordan, the US, and France, Dr. Shirazi’s talk will trace how the relationship between schooling and the formation of youth political subjectivities unfolds in times of uncertainty and flux, and how comparative approaches to educational research may generate new conceptual and methodological insights.

Roozbeh Shirazi is an Assistant Professor in the Comparative and International Development Education Program at the University of Minnesota.  His work examines the intersections of schooling, pedagogy, the politics of belonging, and youth studies in the Middle East, as well as in diasporic, transnational, and immigrant communities in the U.S.  Drawing upon the disciplines of political science and sociocultural anthropology and postcolonial and poststructuralist approaches to research, his scholarship attends to the ways in which policy/governance formations and secondary and postsecondary experiences of schooling contribute to broader forms of sociopolitical membership.
