TODAY – Public Lecture: Somali Youth and Schooling

submitted by

Join us for EAST Research Fellow Dr. Nimo Abdi’s public lecture Wednesday, February 22 at 5 p.m. in OGC 100. Dr. Abdi’s qualitative research explores the intersection of race, religion, gender, and class in immigrant and refugee education. She found that both female and male students internalized mainstream American discourses about Muslims and immigrants, which in turn, affected their worldview. Abdi’s work seeks to inform school policies geared toward creating inclusive school environments for all students. Light refreshments served.
