Lecture based on an ethnographic study of South Asian Muslim immigrant youth in the US after 9/12 and questions of national belonging, particularly notions of dissenting citizenship and imperial feelings.

Sunaina Maira, author of the book "Missing: Youth, Citizenship, and Empire after 9/11," and associate professor of Asian American Studies from the University of California - Davis, will be giving a talk based on an ethnographic study of South Asian Muslim immigrant youth in the US after 9/12 and questions of national belonging, particularly notions of dissenting citizenship and imperial feelings. It will also draw on a new, comparative project focused on South Asian, Arab, and Afghan American youth and politics in the post-9/11 generation on college campuses, exploring issues of Muslim civil rights activism and liberal multiculturalism
