Trinidad Lara's article titled "Queer, Muslim, and Maghrebi: An Intersectional Analysis of Immigrant Identities in Contemporary France" was accepted by the prestigious Journal for Undergraduate Ethnography (JUE) following a peer-review process. Trinidad graduated from George Mason in the winter of 2020 with a BA in Anthropology and a Minor in Theater. Currently, she works at a non-profit organization based in Washington DC and plans on continuing her studies in the near future.
Trinidad has been interested in researching Muslim identities in France for several years. While taking the ANTH 308 with Dr. Yasemin Ipek in fall 2020, she developed her project through a sustained research process over two months where she used an intersectional approach to focus on how queer immigrant women negotiate and conceptualize their identities in contemporary France. Based on the strength of the final paper, Dr. Ipek encouraged Trinidad to continue working on the paper and submit it to the JUE in spring 2021. Trinidad is excited to have a peer-reviewed publication for their article. We congratulate Trinidad on this amazing success and wish her good luck in her future career!”
