Projecten

Meghann Ormond focuses on how shifting visions and practices of citizenship and belonging transform transnational mobility, heritage, health and care relationships. Her work is situated at the intersections of migration studies, health and social geographies, disability studies and tourism studies. It is concerned with post-national, relational conceptualisations of care, responsibility and interdependence, and the governance of these. 

Main research lines:

1) Transnational healthcare: How are the medical and long-term care needs of different transnationally-mobile populations being supported and met in an era of intensified global mobility? Check out https://www.meghannormond.com/transnational-health-care 

2) Migrant heritage: How are the experiences of transnationally-mobile people included and represented in the places in which they live and have lived? Check out https://www.meghannormond.com/migration-heritage-practices 

3) Disability and travel: How do ageing, chronic illness and disability impact travel and recreational experiences and offerings? Check out https://www.meghannormond.com/disability-travel
