About Me


My name is Jenna Murray de López I am an anthropologist specialising in reproductive health matters, maternal embodiment and sensory ethnography. My overall interests are family life, intimate relationships and life-course in societies affected by violence and/or conflict.  My research region is principally, though not exclusive to Mexico and Latin America.

I am also interested in the joys and challenges of #PhDparenting and #ECRparenting and how this impacts upon research choices.

I am currently a lecturer in Humanitarianism and Global Health at the University of Manchester, UK . My doctoral thesis focused on political economy and transition to early motherhood in urban Chiapas, Mexico, I am very proud of it!
