My name is Nazreen Bacchus and I teach Sex and Gender, Social Problems and Gendered Immigration in America in the Sociology department. My research concentrates on the urban immigration of South Asian groups in America. I am particularly interested in examining the process of assimilation for the second-plus generations. I received my doctorate from the Graduate Center, CUNY in 2012 and I am currently adjuncting while working on publications. I have been teaching at Queens for six years- first as a Graduate Teaching Fellow and more recently as an adjunct. Teaching at Queens has been a fantastic learning experience and I enjoy introducing new forms of pedagogy into the classroom. I look forward to the blogging more about classroom interactions.
