    Research Interests

    Susanne Wessendorf is a Social Anthropologist specialising on migration, transnationalism and diversity. She has undertaken in-depth ethnographic fieldwork over long periods in complex urban settings, working with people of different age groups, ethnic, national, religious and class backgrounds. Her work focuses on understanding new forms of social inclusion and exclusion in contexts of immigration-related diversity. She has written on social relations in super-diverse areas, and patterns of settlement of recent migrants in such aeras. Her current work looks at recent immigration into urban aeras which host long-established ethnic minorities. It examines 'arrival infrastrcutrues' provided by long-established migrants and ethnic minorities, and the support these migrants provide for newcomers.
