New Faculty

Christopher KyriakidesA warm welcome to Associate Professor Christopher Kyriakides who holds a Canada Research Chair in Socially Engaged Research in Race and Racialization. Dr. Kyriakides' “Racialized Reception Contexts” research program focuses on configurations of racialization in relation to the meaning of East/West, South/North, and the articulations of racism and nationalism in the reception of refugees in Canada, the United States, Italy, Greece and Jordan.

He will examine the extent to which policy instruments and media discourse related to the global refugee crisis negatively impacts racialized communities in each reception context.
