New associated PhD at NIAS

Sanna Schliewe is a new associated PhD student at NIAS from 1 May.

Sanna is a PhD student from the new Niels Bohr Professorship Centre for Cultural Psychology at Aalborg University, where my project is linked to the core ”Globalization and Intervention”. The aim of my PhD project is to provide new psychological insight about how humans manage to live meaningfully between societies – as temporary immigrants in unfamiliar environments far away from their place of origin. Focus is on Danish expatriates and their domestic workers in India. Based on extensive fieldwork, the project will explore how understandings of self and others is tranformed in everyday encounters. Drawing on a combination of cultural psychology and phenomenology, the project will generate new knowlegde and research tools for the psychology of migration. Moreover, the project aims at providing knowlegde to be used to prepare practitioners working globally with intervention under potentially complicated circumstances.

Sanna will be at NIAS until November 2013.
