DPhil Social Anthropology

Kristine Krause completed her DPhil in Social Anthropology in 2011.

Her thesis 'Migration and medical diversity' focuses on Ghanaian migrants in London and Berlin and how they deal with health problems. The project explores how legal status, social networks and religious belief play into health practices, and how sickness becomes an event in which political subjectivity and emotional belonging is articulated. In addition to her DPhil she works as a research fellow in a project on Transnational Religion funded by the German Research Foundation at the Humboldt University of Berlin.

She is one of the editors of African Diaspora: a Journal of Transnational Africa in a Global World

She holds an MPhil in Social Anthropology and Religious Studies from the Free University of Berlin. Before embarking on her DPhil, she did Public Relations work for museums in Berlin and worked in home-based health care projects. She has been awarded an ERSC centre linked scholarship.
