Marta Vilar Rosales
I am an anthropologist (PhD 2007) and a research fellow at the Institute of Social Sciences, University of Lisbon since 2014. My main fields of research are material culture and consumption, international migrations and media anthropology. Presently, I am PI of TRANSITS – Material Culture, Migration and Everyday Life, a research project that explores the movements of people and things to and from four cities (Berlin, Lisboa, Luanda and Sidney). I have been a visiting fellow in European, Canadian and US Universities and I have done fieldwork in Europe, Africa, South America and North America. I am the author of several books, chapters and articles which explore the intersections between migration, media and contemporary material culture and consumption practices.
