Please join Honors Pre-Faculty Fellows Nadiya Loving and Erfan Saidi Moqadam for an informal presentation and discussion of their research work. The talk takes place in the Undergraduate Library Community Room - 3rd floor. 

Nadiya Nacorda Loving is an artist, mother, and Taurus working with photography, video, sound and performance. Her work explores the nuances and entanglements of inheritance(s) while considering themes of magic, affection, identity and mothering; along with Blasian feminine interiority and subjectivity. As a daughter of migrants, she draws from her own lived experience of growing up in the United States as source material and inspiration. She also looks to the collective ancestral memories and stories passed on through, and between the generations of her Xhosa and Philippine family while exploring broader histories of colonization and displacement. 

Erfan Saidi Moqadam is a specialist in the anthropology of the United States with a focus on migrant and minoritized communities, diasporic identity formation, and religious practice. I pursue a range of scholarly interests through his research and teaching including theories of religion, whiteness and processes of racialization among migrant groups, ethnic identity, and the Muslim-American experience. My research examines how everyday religious practices and the meanings they convey for the social order shape a community that is characterized by experiences of solidarity and differentiation, inclusion and exclusion, and negotiation and conflict. My research expands our understandings of what it means to be Muslim in the U.S. and how processes of belonging for immigrant communities are linked with racialization.
