Sharon Roseman is an anthropologist and faculty member at the St. John’s campus of Memorial University. She is affiliated with Memorial’s Institute of Social and Economic Research as Academic Editor of ISER Books. She has specialized in the study of memory, political economy, and cultural politics. Much of her research has focussed on work, gender, households, and rural communities in Galicia (northwestern Spain), including a consideration of various forms of employment-related geographical mobility such as long-distance labour migration, daily and weekly commuting, and itinerant craftspeople. She has also explored other forms of human mobility in Spain and Newfoundland, through projects on tourism and pilgrimage sites and journeys.
As a co-investigator, Sharon sits on the Executive and will be doing research on ferry commuting and ferry workers as part of the Newfoundland Fieldwork Component.
