Joanna MENET

PhD student and researcher

Joanna is a PhD student at the ‘Laboratory for the Study of Social Processes’ at the University of Neuchâtel. Her doctoral thesis explores the transnational careers of salsa dance professionals of different nationalities living in Europe. Drawing on qualitative methods and transnational and gender perspectives, it examines the lives and career paths of these highly mobile artists.

Joanna currently also works on a project titled ‘[En]countering everyday otherness: Gendered responses to boundaries among second-generation migrants’ within the National Center of Competence in Research (NCCR) ‘The Migration-Mobility Nexus’.

Before that, she was engaged as a teaching assistant (assistante-doctorante) at the ‘Laboratory for the Study of Social Processes’, participating in the teaching activities for Master and Bachelor students. Prior to joining the Laboratory, she was a researcher at the Swiss Forum for Migration Studies (SFM), working on a research project about federalism and Swiss migration policy.

Joanna holds a Masters Degree in Social Anthropology from the University of Zurich. For her Master thesis, she participated in a research project with young adults, exploring questions around ethnicity and multiple belonging.
