She is a specialist on borders, spatial relations and sexuality, information and communications technologies, she has lived in Greece, the UK, USA, Italy and lives in Helsinki, Finland. In September 2016, Green was awarded a European Research Council Advanced Grant to develop new research in the Mediterranean region; the project is called Crosslocations. She was awarded an Academy of Finland Project, called Transit and Travel, which concerns the Mediterranean, though its focus is different. Sarah Green was born in Suffolk, she grew up in Athens, where she first attended school. Following the move of her family to the UK, she continued school there. After a short period at the University of Texas at Austin, she moved back to the UK and became an undergraduate at the University of Cambridge to study the Archaeology and Anthropology Tripos. After another short period in the USA, she began doctoral studies at Cambridge in 1988, obtained her PhD in Social Anthropology in 1992.

Her professional career began as a Research Fellow and an Affiliated Lecturer at the University of Cambridge, from where she moved to Manchester University in 1995. In 2006, she was appointed as a Professor of Anthropology at the University of Manchester, where she served as the Head of Social Anthropology. Green has held visiting appointments in other UK Universities, as well as in Finland. Although the subject matter of her research varies Green’s major conceptual interest lies in the notion of location. For Green such locating practices are inextricably linked to political conditions, as well as social and epistemological elements, her research themes include: the politics of sexuality in London. A considerable portion of her research work was undertaken in the context of interdisciplinary research teams. Early on in her career Green participated in Archaeomedes I and II, which were EU funded projects exploring environmental perceptions and policy making. From 2004 onwards she has been involved in various research activities as a co-ordinator within the ESRC Centre for Research in Socio-Cultural Change.

Since 2006, she has been developing an international research network dedicated to exploring both conceptually and empirically issues related to borders and bordering practices on the eastern periphery of Europe. EastBordNet was funded by COST in 2008 and Green acted as the PI and Chair of the Action. A range of themes related to border research have been explored and a fresh conceptual approach towards the study of borders has been developed; the network included 27 countries and over 280 scholars by the time it held its second international conference in Berlin. The network continues, though it is no longer funded by COST. A new book series entitled Rethinking Borders is about to be launched by the Manchester University Press, with Green as series editor. In 2011, she was invited to be the Executive Program Director of the American Anthropological Association, the biggest international conference in the field of anthropology and was hosted in Montreal. 2013 Borderwork: a visual journey through periphery frontier regions.
