    Peter Miller is a PhD candidate in the Department of Anthropology in the NWO VIDI project "Sexuality and the making of the the middle class: A comparative study of status and desire in three African countries" led by Dr. Rachel Spronk (2017-2021). He gained his Masters in Anthropology at the Universit√© Paris VIII Vincennes-Saint-Denis in 2017 where he undertook research on marriage practices and strategies in an upper-middle class neighbourhood in Khartoum, Sudan. His current PhD research focuses on the question of non-marriage and social status amongst urban professionals in Dakar, Senegal. In this research he explores the gendered processes through which those who are not married cultivate a positive social status and respectability amongst their community.
