Kristine is a member of the Health, Care and the Body Research Group and part of the Long Term Care Partnership team.

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.

Her PhD in Social Anthropology from the University of Oxford with COMPAS (Centre on Migration, Policy, and Society) was 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.

Kristine has written on transnational therapy networks, medical pluralism, transnational Pentecostalism, warehouse churches, political subjectivity and African diasporas based on research conducted in Ghana, UK and Germany. She is one of the founding editors of African Diaspora. Journal of Transnational Africa in a Global World (Brill). Next to her academic work, Kristine worked for years as an assistant to severely disabled people and in various other jobs. She thinks this made her a better researcher.

So a summary of Kristine’s interests might be: political subjectivities and health, transnational care relations and therapy networks, the intersections of medicine, religion and technology, global Pentecostalism, urban diversity and space, transnational migration, African diasporas.
