Research interests

Alice Bloch's current research, ‘Descendants of Holocaust survivors and the concentration camp tattoo’ is funded by the British Academy/Leverhulme small grants scheme. The research focuses on memory, memorialization and inter-generational story telling and silences through the lens of the tattoo inked on the descendants of Holocaust survivors. Through the genealogy of the tattoo, the study explores inter and cross-generational memory and private and public memorialization. The project builds on an earlier collaborative research,  'Children of Refugees in Europe', with Professor Milena Chimienti (HES-SO Geneva) and Professor Catherine Withol de Wenden (Sciences Po Paris) funded by the Swiss Network for International Studies. Alice has undertaken a number of research projects including research for the Department for Work and Pensions exploring access and barriers to the labour market for refugees in Britain; with the International Organisation for Migration examining the economic lives and transnational activities of Zimbabweans in the UK and South Africa; for the Paul Hamyln Foundation exploring the lives and experiences of young undocumented migrants in England and an ESRC funded project with Professor Sonia McKay 'Undocumented Migrants, Ethnic Enclaves and Networks: Opportunities, traps or class-based constructs'.
