Hala Chekri

Third year student, BA Honours degree in Anthropology and Media Studies at Goldsmiths, University of London

My name is Hala Chekri, and I am Italo-Moroccan. I am currently graduating from Goldsmiths, University of London. I have a BA in Anthropology and Media. Prior to joining Goldsmiths, I studied South Asian Studies and Nepali language at the INALCO in Paris.
I am a Higher Education outreach officer for care leavers and Post16 refugees in care at the Lewisham Council in London. 
My research interests are citizenship as a bordering practice, race and the ‘racialisation’ of migrants, and ‘whiteness’ in the post-colonial context. I am also interested in the experience and various representations of ‘second generation immigrants’ in Italy today.
I am keen to investigate the impact of the pandemic on displaced communities and the education of young people. I am looking forward to reflecting with the Global Studies and Critical Theory school about how we can contribute constructively to contemporary socio-political and economic dynamics interdisciplinary in academic writing.
