My research is focused on social peripheries and the various factors that serve to perpetuate their alterities. I am particularly interested in how marginalized peoples construct collective memory in the wake of traumatic experiences, how they historicize these events, and how historical memory and responses to trauma within a specific context reverberate on transnational levels. My doctorate work will examine these themes within contexts where Islam plays key religious and social roles, especially in Afghanistan and Iran.
