Nura A. Sediqe is a postdoctoral research associate and lecturer at the Woodrow Wilson School. Most recently, she co-taught WWS's "The Politics of Public Policy" as part of the core curriculum for the first year MPA students. Her research interests involve how identity, namely racialized identities and gender, influence individual's policy preferences and political behavior. Her forthcoming book manuscript investigates Muslims in the United States and how the evolution of their identities has influenced their policy preferences. She also writes on Black political behavior, focusing on the intersection of race and religion for Black Muslims. More information on her publications and forthcoming work can be found on
