Background

I work across a number of related topics that might be summed up as ways of framing unity and diversity.

The first is the study of citizenship and how collective membership is conceived and operationalised, as well as a theory of action that explains self definition and political participation in relations to this.

Secondly, I work on the topic of race as both a category of social theory and public policy, the former as a means of understanding modernity and difference, and the latter in terms of race equality and public policy.

Thirdly I've long been engaged in a reading of the African-American scholar W. E. B. Du Bois, and the relationship between his concept of 'double consciousness' and ideas of recognition and misrecognition.

Fourthly, I study the sociology and politics of antisemitism and Islamophobia, including their relationship(s) to each other and other forms of racialization.

Fifthly, I research migration in a comparative context, specifically the ways in which localities and city regions respond to displaced migrants and refugees.

Finally, I'm interested in the development of what I call 'Muslim consciousness' and how this features in debates about globalisation, the public sphere and secularism.
