Susanne Wessendorf was a DPhil Student based at COMPAS and later became a member of staff. She is a trained Social Anthropologist and has been doing research on migration, transnationalism and diversity. She is currently a Marie Curie Research Fellow at the Institute for Research into Superdiversity (IRiS) at Birmingham University.
Her work has investigated the interrelationship of transnationalism and integration among the second generation, and more recently, social relations in a superdiverse urban context. Susanne is co-editor (with Steven Vertovec) of ‘The Multiculturalim Backlash’ (Routledge 2010), and author of ‘Second-Generation Transnationalism and Roots Migration‘ (Ashgate 2012) and ‘Commonplace Diversity: Social Relations in a Super-diverse context’ (Palgrave Macmillan 2014).
Susanne is collaborating with Nicholas Van Hear on her Marie Curie fellowship project and hopes to produce a COMPAS Working Paper in early 2017.
