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.
