Ahmed ElhadiCohort 2022


After studying cultural anthropology at the University of Colorado Boulder, Ahmed seeks to explore how people in the Sudanese diaspora innovate, thrive, and build community in times of sociopolitical upheaval, economic hardship, and anti-migration policies, particularly in the United Kingdom. These global challenges have particularly affected the most marginalized groups in and from Sudan, a country that is often ignored by international studies and the global media. Because of this internal and external marginalization, Ahmed seeks to understand the personal perspectives of Sudanese migrants, how Sudanese identities are formed and reformed in diaspora, and how anthropological research can further elaborate on issues of discrimination and solidarity. Ahmed’s other research interests include non-Western conceptions of race and poetry as a means of expressing political discontent.
