Nour Dados is Senior Research Associate on a project with Professor Raewyn Connell about the restructuring of social life under market regimes in the Global South. She is also pursuing her own research into the social, political and economic conditions that have shaped Australia’s refugee policy in the last twenty years.
Nour worked as a Research Associate at the Centre for Research on Social Inclusion from 2009-2010. She has taught in social sciences and cultural studies since 2006. Before joining the University of Sydney she was an Associate Lecturer in the Department of Sociology at Macquarie University. She has also taught in cultural studies, social inquiry and international studies at the University of Technology Sydney and in the Department of Sociology at the University of Sydney.
Nour completed her PhD thesis, Lost and Found in Beirut: Memory and Place in Narratives of the City, at the University of Technology Sydney. This project examined the cultural, social and spatial processes through which knowledge about cities is created and inscribed in the context of post-coloniality and historical change. Her research drew from original source materials in Arabic and French.
Nour has also worked as an accredited NAATI translator and with writers from the Middle East to produce translations for publication in English language journals. Prior to undertaking her doctoral research, she worked in the English as a Second Language (ESL) sector and holds a Masters degree in Applied Linguistics.
