Marianne van Bochove (1983) is an assistant professor of Sociology at the institute of Health Policy and Management at the Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Her research and teaching interests pertain to identity and boundary work in the fields of migration and care, including issues such as:
- Migrant workers in long-term care
- Migrants' local and cross-border identities
- Boundary work of professionals and volunteers in care and social services
As a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Amsterdam, she worked on the project Can't we leave that to the volunteers?. The results were published in 2014 (see 'Publications').
Marianne obtained her PhD degree from the Erasmus University Rotterdam in September 2012. Her dissertation Geographies of Belonging is about the transnational and local involvement of highly skilled migrants. For this research, she received a Bucerius Ph.D. Scholarship in Migration Studies from the ZEIT-Stiftung Ebelin und Gerd Bucerius.
Marianne has also written about migrant live-in care workers, the social functions of insult, the policy on and experiences of Dutch travellers (woonwagenbewoners), and the pros and cons of labelling successful immigrant women as role models.
