Curriculum Vitae


Hadi Khoshneviss's research, informed by critical race/ethnicity theory, historical analysis, and use of ethnographic methods examines how historical construction and maintenance of U.S. nationalism defines belonging and access to material and symbolic resources. His current research focuses on the racialization of people from "the Middle East" as a collaborative project between state institutions, elites, and citizens. He teaches Introduction to Social Sciences, Contemporary Social Problems, and Sociological Theory.

He has his B.A. in War and Conflict Journalism from the School of Media Studies, Tehran, Iran. He worked as a journalist for nearly nine years in Iran and England and has been involved in several E-government projects in Iran.
