Welcome to the Sociology Department

Professor Ethel Brooks works on the rhetorical and ideological tropes that have been presented in concepts like the "war on terror" and in how the Muslim world is depicted, produced and reconfigured through processes of war, colonialism and the rhetoric of the “clash of civilizations.”  Specifically, the research she has been carrying out in the US and Pakistan examines the targeting of South Asians and Muslims as part of a larger redrawing of the boundaries of citizenship, the labor market, the family and community.
