Dr. Besteman has taught
anthropology and African studies at Colby College since 1994. Her research
focuses on racism, immigration and mobility, inequality, and social

John Simon Guggenheim Foundation, and the American Council of Learned Societies
for her research on Somali refugees in the United States. She has authored
seven books and over 40 articles.
