The Migration Program

Maria Stoilkova holds a joint position with the Center for European Studies and the Department of Anthropology at UF. She earned her Ph.D. in Anthropology in 2004 from the University of California, Berkeley.

Dr. Stoilkova specializes in international migration and transnationalism with an emphasis on Europe and Eastern Europe.

She is currently working on a book manuscript exploring social processes in post-communist Bulgaria and the impact of neoliberal policies on citizenship and mobility. At the center of her explorations is the experience of migrant Bulgarian professionals following the collapse of the Cold War system, both in the U.S. and at home. She joins us after completing a project this past two years with the World Bank in D.C. on migration management in the post-communist Eurasian region.

Dr. Stoilkova teaches courses on Transnationalism, International Migration and Human Trafficking, Gender and Migration, Anthropology of Europe, and Anthropology of Post-Socialism.
