Maria Florencia Amigo



Personal profile


My interests and research have revolved around the anthropology and sociology of childhood, mostly in terms of the economic and educational dimension of children in poor contexts. I have conducted research on child labour in Indonesia and on migrant families in Australia. Since 2012 I have taught an experiential learning unit “Internships in Social Research”, which has triggered my interest in the application of the social sciences and on the role of higher education institutions and external organisations in supporting experiential learning to scaffold the transition of university students to meaningful employment.
