I arrived in Bucharest in July with the purpose of researching the large-scale migration from Romania to Western Europe from a small-scale perspective. I was particularly interested in the more personal and emotional impacts that this migration has on those who have stayed behind in Romania. People for whom short visits and long-distance communication is a usual part of daily family life. And so, I began approaching the loved ones of those who migrated for work to core European countries in order to interview them about their experiences.
This Friday I’ll be presenting at Anthropology Day! There’s so many interesting things happening at this event that I’m just going to paste the program in full here. Can’t wait for Nadje al-Ali’s keynote lecture on Gendering Migration!
Excited to have been invited to contribute to the NOISE Summer School of 2016, organized by the Netherlands Research School of Gender Studies. Check out the call for participants. Sounds like it’s going to be great:
