Dr Yasmin Hussain


I came to Leeds in 1999, initially working on a project called Disability, Ethnicity and Young People. I then moved to the department of Sociology and Social Policy. Previous to this, I completed my doctorate at the University of Bradford, looking at the identity of British South Asian women within the realm of literature and film.

Research interests

My main interests are ethnicity, gender and terrorism. I have carried out research on the urban 'riots' in 2001 and a Joseph Rountree Foundation-funded project entitled "The Role of Higher Education in providing Opportunities for Young South Asian Women" with Dr Paul Bagguley. I am currently working with Dr Bagguley on a project analysing the impact of the London bombings.
