Kristine Krause

  • PhD Supervisor
  • Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences Program group Anthropology of Health, Care and the Body

Kristine has a PhD in Social Anthropology from the University of Oxford with COMPAS (Centre on Migration, Policy, and Society) based on long-term fieldwork with migrants from Ghana in London, focusing on how legal status and transnational networks play out in what people do when they are sick. Based on this research she developed a strong interest in how health is linked to political subjectivities and dealt with across national boundaries. In her current research she combines this interest with looking at care work in transnational contexts. Previously she worked at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity, Goettingen, coordinating a working group on medical diversity, and as a research fellow at the Humboldt University Berlin in a German Research Foundation funded project on transnational networks, religion and new migration.

In the ChemicalYouth project she is supervising Lisanne Claessens' PhD project.
