Personal profile

Research interests

I am a PhD Candidate at the International Institute of Social Studies, Erasmus University Rotterdam. I am currently in the final year of my PhD programme, through which I combine media and policy analysis with ethnographic research on reactions in Indonesia to the presence of refugees from abroad. My research illustrates how the discourse of refugee reception in Indonesia must be situated in broader discourses of the state, the citizens, and the constructed boundaries and connections between the citizen and the refugee “other”. I am interested in doing research that discusses the complexities of people’s movements, their narratives of identity, emotions, and affect.
