LA&PS Spotlights

Early Career Scholars: Asad Haider

Early Career Scholars: Asad Haider

As we continue our series highlighting emerging scholars, in this issue, we spotlight Dr. Asad Haider, who joined the department of politics this summer. While new to York University, Dr. Haider is already an established public intellectual on the world stage. A founding editor of Viewpoint Magazine, he is also the author of the influential book Mistaken Identity: Race and Class in the Age of Trump. The book was widely reviewed and debated, including in The Guardian, The New Statesman, and elsewhere, and translated into Spanish, Portuguese, and Korean.

"Both Mistaken Identity and Viewpoint were a way of bridging between political theory and public political interventions," stated Dr. Haider. "I drew on the history of movements against racism in the United States, and of labor and socialist movements in Europe, to try to understand how theoretical concepts play a role in political action just as much as they explain them."

With his engaging style and ability to use plain language, Dr. Haider shows exceptional skills in breaking down some of the most multilayered arguments, such as debates between Marxism and identity politics or the relationship between race and class. For instance, in an intriguing interview with Verso Books, Dr. Haider explained: "One thing that we can't do is decide in the abstract which of any social relations is more determinant in any particular social phenomenon. You can't say: when it comes to slavery, was race more important or was class more important or economics more important?". Connect with Dr. Asad Haider to learn more about his previous work and future projects.
