Welcome to Professor Baljit Nagra

Dr Baljit Nagra joins the Department of criminology as an assistant professor. Profesor Nagra's research aims to understand how racial discourses are rearticulated in the "War on Terror," creating "legitimate" and "illegitimate" members of the Canadian nation, reproducing the colonial practices in Canada and finally resulting in a transnational western alliance.  Her most recent project is a qualitative study consisting of nearly 100 interviews with Canadian Muslim community leaders in five major cities and looking at the impact of recent changes to immigration, citizenship, and security laws and policies on Muslim communities in Canada.
