Mariam Durrani


I am an anthropologist, a teacher, a writer, a media-maker, and a committed activist for social justice.

I work as a postdoctoral fellow in education and lecturer at Harvard University's Graduate School of Education

My research bridges the anthropology of Muslim youth, feminist approaches to transnationalism and migration studies, studies of gender, and critical visuality in classrooms and in the media.

My academic work has been published in American Anthropologist, Anthropology News, Anthropology and Education Quarterly, and Working Papers in Educational Linguistics. I also write journalistic and editorial essays for Religion Dispatches and the blog for Cultural Anthropology
