January 12 2017, the McMaster University’s Institute on Globalization & the Human Condition welcomes Fulbright Scholar, Rhacel Salazar Parreñas for a 4-month teaching / research visit.

 Dr. Salazar Parreñas, a Professor of Sociology at the University of Southern California, will be at McMaster working on her next book which compares migrant domestic workers in Singapore and the United Arab Emirat, highlighting the vulnerable status of domestic workers in unregulated workspaces.

 “I sought a Fulbright at McMaster because the Center for Globalization provides me with an intellectual community that tackles questions of global south to south migration.”, says Salazar Parreñas.

 Her current research examines the intersections of human trafficking and labor migration. Her research areas include labor, gender, migration and economic sociology.

 Dr. Salazar will be at McMaster University from January to April 2017. While she is here she will deliver a guest lecture in “Researching Globalization” (Global Studies 709) as well as a public talk on domestic workers in Dubai, which is scheduled to take place in early or mid-February, 2017.

 The Fulbright Program allows U.S. academics and professionals to engage in multi-country, trans-regional teaching and research activity.
