My background is in sociology, social anthropology and cultural studies. My on-going ethnographic action research project on African diaspora communities and cultures examines possibilities for more inclusive narratives of European societies as multi-ethnic, transnational spaces.

 

Research interests

  • racism, racialised relations and identities
  • African diasporas, dynamics of diaspora formations
  • the role of museums in multi-ethnic societies
  • transnational subjectivities, transnational families
  • childhood and youth
  • ethnographic and participatory research methodologies
  • epistemological challenges in knowledge production on minorities
