Balbir K. Singh

At the nexus of critical ethnic studies and women of color feminisms, her scholarship interrogates the convergence of racial, gendered, and religious embodiment, with migration and policing under violent conditions of imperial and domestic security technologies. She is currently at work on her first book, Militant Bodies: Violence and Visual Culture Under Islamophobia, which is rooted in questions that center post-9/11 racial and religious hyper-policing of Muslims and Sikhs, especially as they relate to bodily comportment and the donning of religious garments.
