Research

My research is in the area of LGBT citizenship with a particular focus on Muslim LGBT politics and identity, including a four year SSHRC funded project on Queer Muslim Visibility in Canada and the United States.  I have also contributed a number of research articles on celebrity culture, covering individual celebrities such as David Beckham and issues such as celebrity and charity activism and celebrity and ageing.

I was a member of the Academic committee for Fifth International Conference on Queering Paradigms “Queering narratives of modernity”, Quito, Ecuador, February 20-22, 2014 and a member of the Organizing Committee and Programming sub-committee for the World Pride Human Rights Conference, June 25-27th, 2014, Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies, University of Toronto.

 

Teaching

I teach in the research areas above as well as sociological theory and sociology of gender.  I welcome proposals for Honours and Masters research projects and papers in any of these areas.
