Hello. This is my story.

Neda Deneva holds a PhD in sociology and social anthropology from the Central European University in Budapest. Her research interests include transnational migration, labour transformations and new work regimes, citizenship and relations with the state, care work, transformations of medical practices in Eastern Europe, maternal and child health.

Neda’s dissertation is an ethnography of Bulgarian Muslims’ migration to Spain. It explores how migrants reconfigure citizenship by everyday acts, claims and struggles within EU regimes of mobility, labour and welfare. As a postdoctoral fellow at the Centre for Liberal Strategies (Sofia) and the International Research Center Work and Human Lifecylce in Global History, re: work at Humboldt University (Berlin) Neda has worked on Roma labour and care migration in the European Union and the implications of the changing meanings and realities of work on access to citizenship rights, and changing generational and care relations. Neda further worked on questions of novel forms of high-skilled migration as a postdoctoral fellow at New Europe College, Bucharest and the Centre for Advanced Studies, Sofia, and at Babes-Bolyai University in the framework of the project RoTECH Strategic Cooperative Networks: Exploring the Cluj information technology networks.

Neda is teaching courses in the field of political sociology, migration and citizenship in the Department of Sociology, and in the field of maternal and child health in the Cluj School of Public Health at Babes Bolyai University.
