Mobile Livelihoods is an interdisciplinary research network that investigates the social and economic uses of mobile phones in the global South. It brings together anthropologists, other scholars and practitioners from around the world. Information about our research projects, partners, sponsors and events will be published here as the programme develops. (See also our “mobliv” tag on delicious.com).

We are very grateful to C3RI, Sheffield Hallam University, and to the Chilean Scientific and Technological Research Council (CONICYT)  for their generous financial assistance.

  4. Hi John,

    Very impressive your work until now. Like especially the network approach. I am working at MPI in Göttingen on the life worlds of refugees/ migrants from Burma. Have just received a grant from Thailand Research Fund. And will explore also the communication of political projects on homepages and the making of media communities/ overlapping with religious communities. I am still interested in Singapore. Maybe, we should take up our old project, as the directors at MPI are both interested in Singapore. What do you think?
    See you in Maynooth!

  5. Hi Alex, we have a digital media project at Sheffield Hallam that involves working with the Karen-Burmese minority in Sheffield. Let’s continue this exchange via email re: Singapore etc.
    All the best
