Rhea Rahman is assistant professor of anthropology. Her research and teaching focus on transnational practices of racialization and forefronts the question: how is human difference used for justifying systems of inequality and oppression, and how might we instead engage difference with an eye towards liberation? Rahman is currently working on a manuscript that frames international Muslim volunteerism, humanitarianism and development through intersecting logics of global white supremacy, anti-Muslim racism, and anti-blackness. She is also beginning work on a second project that explores transnational links between blackness and Islam in (West and South) Africa and the Caribbean.
