Tilmann Heil

As of June 2017, the anthropologist has started his fellowship within the framework of Belgium’s [PEGASUS]² Incoming programme.

He was scientific coordinator of the Ph.D. Program “Europe in the Globalized World.”
He currently is doing research on urban hierarchies and inequalities based on ethnographic research with West African and Southern European migrants in Rio de Janeiro. Furthermore, he collaborates with Meron Zeleke on gendered migration between Ethiopia and Djibouti. Since his doctoral work he furthermore works on the notion of conviviality as a process of interaction, negotiation and translation from which forms of minimal and fragile sociality emerge.
