Dr. Natasha Hakimali Merchant

Natasha Hakimali Merchant is an assistant professor of multicultural and social studies education at UW Bothell where she teaches courses in the social foundations of education as well as advanced courses in critical educational change. Her research interests revolve around the ways Islam is taught in secondary social studies contexts. Influenced by traditions of critical ethnographies, she seeks to understand the experiences of Muslim students as they encounter themelseves as subjects in the classroom as well as the practices of justice-oriented teachers who seek to teach against Islamophobia.
