Research

Theorizing Cross-Border Inequalities, Gender and Intersectionality 

In a rapidly changing world, individuals’ life opportunities are increasingly determined by distant and even deterritorialized circumstances. Analysis of these life opportunities requires new conceptual tools which challenge the nation-centred focus of inequality studies. My research involves the development of elements of a new conceptual toolkit that can be used to denaturalize spatial relations, including the categories 'global' and 'transnational'. This toolkit combines the cross-border perspective on social inequalities with aspects of gender and intersectional studies that consider ‘gender’, ‘ethnicity’/’race’, ‘class’ and many other axes of difference as categories that play a crucial role in the unequal distribution of valued social resources across the world.

A Mobile Perspective to European Transformations 

How can the nexus of migration and social transformation be conceptualized after the ‚mobility turn‘ in social sciences? My research addresses conditions of social change in relation to the processes of transnationalization and cross-border migration to and within the enlarged Europe. The respective publications consider both the intra-EU mobility, but also the movements from the non-EU ‘peripheries’ to the EU. These publications focus, in particular, on the interplay between migration, social protection, gendered and ethnicized social inequalities in the context of post-enlargement Europe.

Beyond Methodological Nationalism: Research Methodologies for Cross-Border Studies 

Cross-border studies have become attractive to a number of fields, including international migration studies, studies of material and cultural globalization, and history. As the field of cross-border studies has increased, so has criticism of the nation-centred research lens. Several of my publications provide insights into novel methodological strategies that address the drawbacks of methodological nationalism. The publications I have co-edited with some of my colleagues are collections of articles on multi-scalar and transnational approaches, global and multi-sited ethnography, and entangled and subaltern history approaches. What makes these strategies novel and innovative is that they use an interdisciplinary lens that ranges from sociology through social anthropology to history.
