ARC-GS Visiting Scholars

Current ARC-GS Visiting Scholar(s):

  • Serena Cruz (Florida International University):
    Serena is currently a visiting research scholar at the University of Amsterdam. She is jointly hosted by the research group Health, Care and the Body (HCB) and ARC-GS.  During her time as a visiting scholar, Serena will be developing articles for publication, developing a book proposal for her dissertation, and exploring post-doctoral funding sources to pursue a new research agenda that builds upon her doctoral study and her findings from the Clingendael research project. This new study is titled "Sins, Sinners, and Survival: The Risks of Coping with HIV, Conflict, and Commercial Sex Work in Northern Uganda". The project will seek to explore how risk is managed, in relation to HIV, as well as how individuals cope with daily survival in the aftermath of conflict. Her primary site of interest is the Bidi Bidi refugee settlement in Northern Uganda. Thematically, Serena is devoted to exploring "risk", "vulnerability", and "coping" through ethnographic means that delve into the social dimensions of survival.
