Current research:

Majella has three on-going projects. The most recent began in November 2017, and is part of the ESRC Large Grant Sustainable Care Programme (led by Professor Sue Yeandle), in which she co-leads (with Professor Louise Ryan) a stream of work on Care ‘in’ and ‘out of’ place: towards sustainable well-being in mobile and diverse contexts.

Since October 2017, with Sheffield colleagues Louise Ryan and Aneta Piekut, Majella is also working on a 2-year Noble Foundation funded project – Modern Poland: Migration and Transformations – in collaboration with colleagues at the Centre for Migration Research, University of Warsaw.

In the third project MIGRATE, a Jean Monnet Research Network across 8 countries focused on the impacts of the so-called ‘European migrant crisis’, which began in September 2016, Majella leads the Sheffield team’s work on the impact of the ‘crisis’ on European integration.
