Short bio

I am interested in the anthropology of marginality and nomadism with ethnographic attention to Sinti in Northern Italy. More recently, I have been concentrating on marginality and multi-species ethnography working with alpine shepherds and high alpine ecosystems. Both subjects tie in with questions relating to land(s) in the European Alps.
Furthermore, I am interested in begging economies and theories of gift-giving based on my own ethnographic experiences of begging and selling with Sinti. My interest in ethnographic approaches to archives is inspired by the mnemonic practices of the Sinti as well as those of the alpine shepherds and relates especially to debates on the construction of space and time. I have spent several years studying policy-making of the EU and the Italian state.
