I joined the Department in September 2010; prior to that I was a Research Fellow at Sussex University (2008-2010), working on the project Art Festivals and the European Public Culture (www.euro-festival.org) and before moving to the UK I taught sociology in a number of Italian universities and held a post-doctoral Jean Monnet Fellowship at the European University Institute in Florence.
Laurea (BA Hons) in Political and Social Sciences, University of Bologna; MA in Modernism, Gender and Postmodernism, University of East Anglia; PhD in Sociology, University of Parma. I’m currently a Lecturer in the Department and Co-Director of the Centre for Urban and Community Research (CUCR).
Currently, I co-convene the BA Media and Sociology Programme with Liz Moor (Media and Communications). I contribute to core courses at both BA and MA level and convene options in my area of research: ‘Art & Society’ (BA Option) and ‘Cultural Policy and City Branding’ (MA Option). Previously, I have convened the MA Programme Critical and Creative Analysis between 2010-2012.
I welcome applications from prospective research students wishing to work in any of my areas of teaching or research. Currently I am co-supervising (with Nirmal Puwar) Felipe Palma, working on ritual festivities in the Atacama, Chile.
