Angelo Martins Junior

Research Associate, School of Sociology, Politics and International Studies 

Angelo has carried out research in Brazil and the UK on issues related to the labour market, mobility, migration and processes of social differentiation and racialisation. Employing qualitative research, including ethnography and biographical narrative interviews, his research projects have dealt with groups at the sharp end of various forms of precariousness, inequality, exploitation and violence. These include, for example, ‘The new territories of labour and production in Brazil: labour relations in the footwear cluster of Jau/SP’, and ‘From cleaner to waiter: trajectories of Brazilian workers in London’.  

His earlier research, supported by the Brazilian Ministry of Education, examined the production and negotiation of difference among Brazilians living in London. Currently, he is working on the five-year research project ‘Modern Marronage: the pursuit and practice of freedom in the contemporary world’.
