Orality-literacy, Black/African diaspora, multimodality, cultural rhetorics, Somalia, self and identity, migration
I am a Somali-Australian focused on experience, memory, and diasporic identity and its many intersections. My research interests are focused on identity formation, feminist diaspora communities, digital technologies, and displacement. Furthermore, I want to look closely at how identity is affected by memory, assimilation, and forced migration.
