Assistant Professor of Anti-Racism Education
Naved Bakali completed his PhD from McGill University, Montreal, in Cultural and International Studies in Education, where he also served as a sessional lecturer. Prior to joining University of Windsor's Faculty of Education, Naved was an Assistant Professor of Education at the American University in Dubai. Drawing from critical race theory, cultural and media studies, and post-colonial theory, Naved's research focuses on the study of anti-Muslim racism, also referred to as Islamophobia. Additionally, his research interests include internationalizing and decolonizing higher education, refugee education, Islamic pedagogy, and educational programing for survivors of trauma. His research provides a fresh and innovative perspective on Islamophobia within institutional settings, thus demonstrating the institutionalization of anti-Muslim racism across the global North and South. Naved has been the recipient of major international, national, and departmental grants and awards in recognition of his work. He is a dynamic scholar who believes in socially oriented action-research that challenges prejudice and inequality by combining his research with grassroots activism.
