Research Interests

Robin Palmer's PhD research was an early study in what became known as transnationalism. Concerning Italian migrants, the study was based on fieldwork in rural Italy and London. His subsequent wide-ranging research projects in South Africa's former Bantustans have included: a survey of black blood donors, ex-donors and non-donors; racial succession in a small town; a focus on gender, households and the environment two villages; a land claim on two nature reserves and their neighbouring communities on the Wild Coast; and more recently the impact of a digital 'living lab' in the same general area.
