Ian Morrison

Dr. Morrison is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at the American University in Cairo. His research and publications make interdisciplinary interventions into understandings of the relationship between religion, the nation, and citizenship by focussing on moments when dominant conceptions of identity and belonging are perceived to be under threat. In such moments the boundaries of belonging are both articulated and contested, providing important glimpses into the way in which identity and subjectivity are governed, transformed and reproduced.

Research Areas: Canadian Sociology, Migration Immigration, Race and Ethnicity, Religion, Social Theory
