Biografie

Meghann Ormond (PhD in Geog., Univ. of St Andrews, UK, 2011; PgDip in Geog., Univ. of Lisbon, Portugal, 2005; BA in Middle Eastern Studies and Geog., Univ. of Colorado-Boulder, USA, 2002) is Associate Professor in Cultural Geography.

As a cultural geographer, an immigrant and ardent fan of the transformative potential of international travel, Meghann is deeply invested in and concerned with how differently-mobile people's roots, rights and vulnerabilities are recognised and included in the places they visit and in which they live. Her research focuses mainly on how shifting visions and practices of citizenship and belonging transform transnational mobility, health and care relationships. For more information about her research lines, publications and her teaching and supervision at Wageningen University, visit: http://www.meghannormond.com She can also be found on Research Gate and Academia.edu.  

Meghann is interested in supervising students in the following areas:

  • transnational health and social care practices and governance
  • political consumerism
  • social solidarity in regional development, international aid and volunteering practices
  • migrant heritage practices
  • genealogy and recreational genomics
  • disability and accessible tourism
  • foodways and tourism

Students interested in doing a thesis on one of these themes are invited to contact her by email (meghann.ormond [@] wur.nl] with a CV and short project proposal.

Projecten

Meghann Ormond focuses on how shifting visions and practices of citizenship and belonging transform transnational mobility, health and care relationships. Her work is situated at the intersections of migration studies, health and social geographies, disability studies, social gerontology 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
