Amina Mire
Professor, Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Carleton University

Mire’s research interests include the racialization and bio-medicalization of women’s bodies and skin, and anti-racist and anti-colonial research.

Mire’s current research examines changing skin-whitening technologies by tracing their emergence from colonial encounters, in which white skin was accorded social and cultural capital, toward the contemporary global marketing of biotechnology products that promise smooth, brightened and youthful-looking skin to affluent women.

Grant is the Director of the Centre for Information Technology, Organizations, and People and the principal investigator for the Black Entrepreneurship Knowledge Hub (BEKH).

BEKH is a critical pillar in the Black Entrepreneurship Program funded by the federal government through Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada. The BEKH seeks to build a robust knowledge base for Black entrepreneurship in Canada. It focuses on closing the gaps in information, research, and statistics about Black entrepreneurs, the businesses they are engaged in, and their needs for business support, access to funding, and business and technical know-how to help their businesses grow sustainably into the future.
