Dr Rosie Roberts is a Lecturer in Cultural Studies at the University of South Australia. Her research focuses on middling forms of transnational migration into and out of Australia. She has recently published a book titled ‘Ongoing mobility trajectories: lived experiences of global migration’ (Springer 2019), examining the ways migrants enact agency and negotiate risk under the spatial and temporal conditions of multi-stage and ongoing migration pathways. Her current collaborative projects include a co-edited book with Associate Professor Shanthi Robertson, which provides a critical exploration of middling transnationalism (contracted with Routledge, 2021) as well as a project exploring arts-based approaches of working with new arrivals from a refugee background, to support their resettlement in Australia. She has also worked on several government funded education projects, which focused on the transition of students from disadvantaged backgrounds to higher education.
