Expert Statement

My research focuses on diasporic communities – specifically, Moroccan-origin families in Europe – and their mobilities between homelands. As a sociolinguist and human geographer, I particularly focus on the importance and intangible value of face-to-face interaction, and how being physically present as mobile, embodied actors has complex effects on individuals and communities. In addition, I have explored how ethnoracial categorisations related to migration and belonging become embedded in face-to-face encounters (see https://medium.com/@LBWagner).
