How does migration affect social class? Marta Bivand Erdal wants to find out. She's just been awarded a prestigious European Research Council grant to look families in four cities in Asia, to try to find out how migration has (or has not) changed their fortunes. Marta and Indigo talk pop culture migration narratives like Crazy Rich Asians, about language barriers in fieldwork, and how the Eurovision movie might be relevant to Marta's interests.
Marta will be hiring two post-docs for her project in 2021–22. If you want to learn more, please visit the Migration Rhytyhms project webpage.
