Sujet d’étude :

Gabriella Körling holds a PhD (2011) in cultural anthropology from Uppsala University. She has carried out fieldwork in Niger since 2004 and short term fieldwork in Mali since 2011. Her research interests include the anthropology of the state, urban anthropology, infrastructure, politics and decentralization. Körling’s PhD dissertation In Search of the State : An Ethnography of Public Service Provision in Urban Niger addressed the everyday construction of the state in urban Niger. It approached the state through the study of public health and education services focusing on people’s daily experiences of and expectations on such services. Gabriella has also carried out a comparative research project together with Sten Hagberg on decentralization and political practice in municipalities in Niger, Mali and Burkina Faso (Expanding Spheres of Opposition ? Democratic Culture and Local Development in West African municipalities). Gabriella’s current project (2015-2019) “Waiting for the railway : Infrastructure, mobility and trade at a West African crossroads” sets out to explore the relationships between infrastructure mobility and trade in Niger. The project takes the construction of Niger’s first railway line as an entry point for exploring political and historical processes in relation to infrastructure and mobility in a town situated alongside the future railway tracks.
