Biography, Education and Training

Talib is a doctoral candidate, teaching assistant, and instructor in literature and critical race and ethnic studies. He focuses on the racial and queer politics of American imperial militarism in Asia and its diasporas, with special attention to under-theorized regions of the so-called “war on terror,” e.g. Pakistan and the Philippines. He got his BA from UCSC and MS in social policy from Lund University (Sweden).
