Elaine Bauer

Dr Elaine Bauer is an anthropologist and currently a Senior Research Fellow and Lecturer in the School of Law and Social Sciences at London South Bank University.  

Her research projects have covered a wide variety of themes including international migration and communication, transnationalism, race and ethnic relations, family structures and relationships and household organisation. Central to all her work is her concern with understanding diversity, resilience and the role of history (including oral histories) in understanding cultural and social transformations, and the construction of identities over time and across contexts.

Her publications include Jamaican Hands Across the Atlantic: Transnational Families (2006), co-authored with Paul Thompson and published by Ian Randle Publishers; and The Creolization of London Kinship: Mixed African-Caribbean and white British Extended Families (2010) published by Amsterdam University Press.
