Anna Larson is a PhD candidate in the department of Politics and International Relations at the University of Adelaide. Her research interest is in the changing concept of citizenship as a result of globalisation, and the influence that transnationalism has on national identity. Anna’s interest in this field stems from her own transnational upbringing, where she experienced first-hand the complexity of the relationship between identity and citizenship.

Project:
"Globalisation, particularly the increased cross-border movement of people, has challenged our traditional and territorialised understanding of citizenship. One particular aspect of citizenship that is diversifying as a result of globalisation is national identity. Increased mobility and a transnational lifestyle may affect an individual’s emotional relationship with a country – national identity – which is understood as a central element of citizenship. Using the case study of Australian expatriates, this project aims to determine how this transnational cohort fits into existing citizenship theory. The study will empirically explore the experiences, perceptions and practices of Australian expatriates, particularly their national identity, in order to contribute to understanding the changing concept of citizenship in an increasingly global context."
