Professor Sadeghi earned her Ph.D. in 2014 from Department of Sociology at Temple University. Her research is organized around several interrelated projects and themes – migration and geopolitics, as well as racialized and politicized belonging – which are examined through a cross-national, qualitative methods approach with a regional specialization in contemporary Europe and the United States. In her most recent work, Sadeghi considers how the rise of anti-immigrant movements across Europe, the 2015 Refugee Crisis, the 2016 Iran Deal, the most recent US Presidential Election, and the 2017 “Muslim Ban” are reflected in the perceptions and experiences of belonging and membership of Iranians in the US and Germany.
