Karine Geoffrion holds a PhD in Anthropology from the University of Montreal, Quebec. She was a professor of Sociology and Anthropology at the University of Cape Coast, Ghana, from 2009 to 2012. Her research is divided into two distinct fields of study: 1) gender diversities and sexualities in sub-Saharan Africa (Ghana) in the context of an increased visibility of discourses on homosexuality and 2) intimacies and “mixed” transnational families. Inspired by theoretical perspectives combining gender and mobility, she examined the lived experience of transnational intimate relations and spousal reunification in Canada through an ethnography of North-South couples. In this research, she studies the selection process of a partner and the reconfiguration of intimacies, families, and identities in a context where an individual’s transnational mobility is regulated by larger systems of global inequalities mainly based on nationality, race, and social class. Romantic love and disciplinary regimes related to white Canadian women’s sexuality are central to the analysis.
