Dr Ana Margheritis is Reader in International Relations in Politics & International Relations at the University of Southampton.

Studying international migration pushes me to constantly question the silly ideas that have travelled with me, to re-consider what I have learned in different political geographies, to ‘recognize [my]yourself in he and she who are not like you and me’ as Carlos Fuentes (Mexican writer and diplomat, 1928-2012) put it.

Ana Margheritis, Ph.D., Political Science, University of Toronto, Canada. Reader in International Relations and member of the Centre for Citizenship, Globalization and Governance at the University of Southampton.

Before coming to Soton, I was Assistant Professor of International Relations and Latin American Politics at University of Florida, Neil Allen Visiting Chair of Latin American Studies at The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University, Andrew W. Mellon Fellow at Tulane University, Fulbright Visiting Fellow at Columbia University and University of California at San Diego, Professor at Universidad Torcuato Di Tella, and researcher at the National Scientific and Technical Research Council of Argentina.

My recent works on transnational migration developed while visiting at the Getulio Vargas Foundation in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (2014); ITAM in Mexico, D.F., Mexico (2012); the Dipartamento di Studi Sociali e Politici of Università Degli Studi di Milano, Milan, Italy (2011); CERI at Sciences Po, Paris, France (2010), CEACS at Juan March Institute in Madrid, Spain (2010); and FLACSO in Quito, Ecuador (2009). Some of the results are published in International Migration Review (2014), Review of International Political Economy (2013), International Political Sociology (2011), Journal of European Public Policy (2007), and Global Networks, A Transnational Affairs Journal (2007).
