Dr Dogus Simsek

About

I am a sociologist with research and teaching experience in migration and refugee studies. Before joining Kingston, I taught at the School of Slavonic and East European Studies at University College London. My work focuses on the intersections between race, class and gender in the context of migration. I am currently exploring how race, racism and racialization have become intertwined with broader issues of migration. My main research interests include forced migration, the refugee experience, the intersection of race, class and gender, transnational migration and second generation.  

I am a module leader for ‘Migration in a Global Context', and lecture across all levels (UG and PG). I have authored publications in the areas of forced migration, race and class and, second generation.

I am keen to supervise students interested in exploring migration, and the intersections between displacement, race, class and gender.
