“The Limits of Whiteness: Iranian Americans and the Everyday Politics of Race” with Neda Maghbouleh—An Everybody Reads Event
Monday, April 16, 2018 - 12:00pm to Monday, April 16, 2018 - 2:00pm

When: Monday, April 16, 12-2 pm

Where: SMSU 238

In this talk, based on her new book The Limits of Whiteness (2017, Stanford University Press), Neda Maghbouleh shares the curious, under-theorized story of how Iranian Americans move across a white/not-white color line. By contextualizing ethnographic data with neglected historical and legal evidence, she offers new evidence for how a “white” American immigrant group can become “brown,” and what such a transformation says about race in North America today.
