Sandrine Jean is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology at Memorial University. She holds a PhD in Urban Studies from INRS-UCS (Montreal) and has completed a MSc and a BA in Anthropology at University of Montreal. The research she has been conducting over the past years focuses on the different dimensions of the everyday life of young families, exploring themes of place attachment, neighbourhood choice, housing and mobility.
In collaboration with the On the Move Partnership, Sandrine examines how mobility and attachment are intertwined in Newfoundland and Labrador and Alberta families’ residential trajectories, housing choices and daily mobility. Her research aims to shed light on the impacts of employment-related geographical mobility on the experiences of balancing family and work lives. She is interested in understanding how daily lives, attachment to place and community sustainability are affected by employment-related geographic mobility, whether it involves long-distance commute of Fly-in/Fly-out.
Sandrine is still looking for people to share their stories about what it is like to work away from home or to work on the move. Please don’t hesitate to contact her and to pass the word!
