Nadia Jones-Gailani's research interests include migrants and migration networks, diaspora and transnationalism, feminist ethnography, gender and sexuality, Islamic and postcolonial feminist critique, religious ritual, memory and trauma, and food history. She teaches courses on feminist qualitative ethnographic methods, gender and migration, Islamic feminism, and political radicalism in Islam, bringing to these topics a much needed historical context for understanding current events and processes that have precipitated increasing displacement, conflict, and radicalism globally. Her book manuscript, The Transnational Lives of Iraqi Women: Negotiating Faith, Family and Community Across the Diaspora, is currently under review with University of Toronto Press. The book explores the memories and identities of displaced Iraqi female refugees over several sites of settlement in Jordan and later in North America. With a focus on Muslim feminism in the modern Arab World, her research interests focus on individual life histories and what these can tell us about women’s day-to-day experiences.
