Thesis Thursday with Salim Murad

April 14, 2016
Dr. Salim Murad is a faculty member in the Department of Social Sciences, Faculty of Education, at the University of South Bohemia in Ceske Budejovice, Czech.  He also teaches at New York University in Prague.  Murad studies migration and immigration and was a visiting fellow at the Refugee Studies Centre at the University of Oxford.  He has worked on projects for UNHCR Czech Republic and the Human Rights Education Centre of Charles University in Prague.  Murad gave a very spirited presentation titled “A Taste of Communism” to UA students last summer who were doing parasitology research in Czech.  The presentation centered around foods that were common in Czech under Communist rule that then disappeared from the market after the fall of Communism in 1989.  These foods are now coming back on the Czech market as a segment of the population is experiencing nostalgia for Communist days.  This was a very powerful way of sharing a significant part of Czech history.
Dr. Murad visited Tucson in April to learn more about immigration and migration issues on the US Mexico border and he stopped by KXCI to talk about his work on Thesis Thursday.

The University of Arizona’s Undergraduate Biology Research Program is partnering with KXCI 91.3 to produce “Thesis Thursday,” a weekly segment featuring student researchers talking about their undergraduate thesis projects, or research projects while working with University professors. Students describe their research, their overall goals and career interests and where they think their research will lead. As well, they get a chance to share the music and interests that motivate them.Broadcast three times every Thursday with a new student each week.

Thursdays: 9:55 AM, 11:55 AM, and 2:55 PM

Produced by Cathy Rivers
