Amy Donovan Blondell

Visiting Research Fellow

Working at the intersection of the social sciences, geography, public health, and the documentary arts, Dr. Amy Donovan Blondell conducts participatory research projects with highly mobile homeless young people in the U.S. context.  The methods and findings of the Youth Trek study are elaborated in Geographies of Children and Young People (in Press, Skelton, editor, Springer), in chapters addressing: gender and sexuality, artistic representation and subjectivity, migration and journeying, navigating environmental hazards, border crossing, and work in formal and informal economies. At present, Dr. Donovan Blondell is at the Oxford Department of International Development completing a book on the mobility, healthcare, housing, employment, and income generating activities of homeless young people as they travel across county, state, and sometimes national borders.
