F. Shaznene Hussain received her Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Connecticut and her B.A. in Political Science and Middle East Studies from the University of Arkansas. Before coming to Trinity, Professor Hussain taught at Hamilton College, Central Connecticut State University, University of Hartford, and University of Connecticut, and worked as a community education specialist at the Connecticut Fair Housing Center. Professor Hussain’s primary research project draws on decolonial, postcolonial, and transnational feminist frameworks to examine the ways in which material and discursive aspects of global political economic relations and international human rights regimes are gendered and racialized. Her work focuses on the relationship between international law, gender, and race in the regulation of transnational land acquisition.
