Anna Korteweg

Anna Korteweg is Professor and Chair of Sociology at the University of Toronto Mississauga. Her research focuses on the ways in which the problem of immigrant integration is constructed in the intersections of gender, religion, ethnicity and national origin. From this critical vantage point, she has analyzed debates surrounding the wearing of the headscarf, so-called “honour-based” violence, and Sharia law. Current research projects focus on racialization and LGBTQ/gender rights construction in refugee politics, the criminalization of migrant status, and the citizenship implications of refugee sponsorship in Canada.
