Biographical note

Elizabeth Challinor is a researcher at the Centre for Research in Anthropology (CRIA/UMinho) in Portugal and co-coordinator of the research group Governance, Policies and Livelihoods. Originally from a literary background (French and Spanish, BA Oxford 1988), she became interested in Anthropology after living in Angola (1988-1992) where she worked for a Portuguese NGO (1990-1992). She has an MA in Rural Social Development from the University of Reading (1993) and an MA in Applied Social Anthropology (“Third World Development and Social Transformation”) from the University of Sussex (1995) where she also completed her PhD (2001) on local development, associations, NGOs and their relations with the state in Cape Verde. She has carried out research since 2008 on migrant women’s experiences of maternity and motherhood in Portugal, examining the institutionalised encounters between health professionals, social workers and Cape Verdean student mothers, addressing issues related to governmentality and identity. She is currently undertaking new research on encounters of migrant and refugee hospitality in northern Portugal.
