dr. (Kevin) KMJP Pijpers


I am a social anthropologist of sorts, interested in social and environmental (in)justices. I look at affective knowledge practices in the city, archaeology, science & technology, and policy & breakdown. How bodies know, and what they feel is worth keeping (and not) in times of climate catastrophe is of urgent concern.

I am a member of the Public Issues and Imaginaries team at Erasmus School of Social and Behavioural Sciences. I am affiliated with the Pandemic & Disaster Preparedness Center, an initiative from the Convergence of Erasmus University Medical Center, Delft University of Technology, and Erasmus University Rotterdam. I am also affiliated with the BePrepared Consortium for Pandemic Preparedness.

My project prepares a multi-sited living lab in my home borough of Rotterdam South in alignment with a multi-sited ethnography that knots local issues to translocal socio-politics. I combine volunteer work with my research on the everyday politics of city denizens. Conceptually, I draw on various ethnographic and sociological sources to situationally analyse existing (trans)local and social infrastructures in the stigmatized territory of Rotterdam South.
