Dr. Rivke Jaffe is Professor of Cities, Politics and Culture at the Department of Human Geography, Planning and International Development Studies and the Centre for Urban Studies within the Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research. Prior to joining the UvA, she held teaching and research positions at Leiden University, the University of the West Indies, and the Royal Netherlands Institute of Southeast Asian and Caribbean Studies (KITLV).

Her anthropological research focuses primarily on intersections of the urban and the political, and specifically on the spatialization of power, difference and inequality within cities. She is interested in how urban problems such as poverty, crime and environmental degradation are linked to social differentiation along lines of ethnicity, class and gender. How are these inequalities constructed, reproduced and transformed through urban policy, market forces and social movements? How does the (colonial) past shape the cities of today? What is the role of popular culture - music, video clips, murals, graffiti - in the ways we experience and communicate urban exclusion and solidarity? Rivke's engagement with these concerns is motivated by the conviction that anthropology and urban studies can provide important insights into what divides and what unites us, into the social problems we face and the solutions that are possible.

Rivke is a member of De Jonge Akademie (the Young Academy of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences). She is web editor and editorial board member of the International Journal of Urban and Regional Research, co-editor of the European Review of Latin American and Caribbean Studies and editorial board member of American Anthropologist.

Research projects

Public-private security assemblages

Rivke is Principal Investigator of a five-year research program on public-private security assemblages in Kingston, Jerusalem, Miami, Nairobi and Recife. This research, funded by an European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant and a Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) VIDI grant, investigates to what extent security assemblages function as hybrid governance structures, and the implications this has for how different groups enact and experience citizenship. It examines how urban spaces and populations are governed, and how political subjectivities shift, as a result of these hybrid forms of security provision.

The popular culture of illegality

In collaboration with Martijn Oosterbaan (Utrecht University), Rivke is leading an NWO-GW funded project titled “The Popular Culture of Illegality: Criminal Authority and the Politics of Aesthetics in Latin America and the Caribbean”. Focusing on Jamaica, Mexico and Brazil, a research team will study the popular music, visual culture and material culture through which the socio‐political authority of criminal organizations is produced. The project, which is situated at the intersection of anthropology and cultural studies, connects critical aesthetic theory to research on popular culture and governmentality.

Slum tourism

Together with Eveline Dürr (LMU, Germany) and Gareth Jones (LSE, UK), Rivke is involved in leading the three-year NWO/DFG/ESRC ORA Plus research project “Slum Tourism in the Americas: Commodifying Urban Poverty and Violence”. This trilateral research project investigates “slum tourism” in Kingston, Los Angeles, Mexico City and Rio de Janeiro. Drawing on a multi-sited ethnographic approach, the research team will theorize the commodification of urban poverty and violence in the context of global mobilities and urban political economies of spectacle.

Crime and citizenship

Rivke’s research in Jamaica has studied the complicated relationship between the postcolonial state, criminal leaders and the urban poor. This research explored how criminal organizations and the formal state share control over urban spaces and populations, and the formulations of citizenship and sovereignty that result from this. This project, “Between the Street and the State: Crime and Citizenship in Kingston, Jamaica”, was awarded a three-year NWO VENI research grant (2010-2013).

Political ecology

Rivke has conducted extensive fieldwork in Jamaica and Curaçao on environmentalism, urban space and the politics of difference. This research, which formed the basis of a recent monograph with Oxford University Press, forged new connections between urban and environmental anthropology, exploring the ways that concepts of pollution organize relations between raced and classed bodies and urban space. Her interest in environmental issues, and their links to colonial and elite power, have continued through work on ‘eco-chic’ consumption, the history of sanitary reform and representations of natural disasters.
