From Manila, Philippines, Anjeline de Dios is a cultural geographer researching the intersections of migration, mobilities, creative/cultural labour, ethnography, and music. She completed her bachelors and masters degrees in philosophy and applied ethics (BA & MA Philosophy, Ateneo de Manila University, Philippines; Erasmus Mundus MA in Applied Ethics, Linköping University, Sweden), and holds a PhD in Geography from the National University of Singapore. Prior to joining the Department of Cultural Studies, she was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Asia Research Institute, National University of Singapore. She is co-editor (with Lily Kong) of The Elgar Handbook Geographies of Creativity (Edward Elgar, forthcoming 2019), and is working on a booklength manuscript based on her ethnographic dissertation on the labour geographies of overseas Filipino musicians. Parallel to her academic work, Anjeline is also a chant performer who writes and collaborates with artists and facilitators in contexts of improvisational performance (jazz, dance, sound art), and community meditation.
