DPhil Migration Studies Student
Research: My research interests centre around the social and creative affordances of music in the context of displacement. My project works with forced migrants in North-Rhine Westphalia, Germany in a variety of institutional and artistic contexts. Primarily, I am interested in the role of state-funded music programmes and how they interact within Germany’s migrant integration policies. My project uses participatory action research methodologies in which community stakeholders take on the role of co-researchers in the production of knowledge.
