About me

 

I am an Italian researcher currently based in Amsterdam. I completed a PhD in Cultural and Postcolonial Studies at the University of Naples “L’Orientale" with a dissertation entitled “Residual Aesthetics. Political Ecology of Matter and Re-Cycling Technologies within Contemporary Art Landscape”. My research interests are specifically located in the field of new media theory at the intersection with the transdisciplinary perspective of cultural studies and postcolonial theory. From this double perspective, I address contemporary cultural processes by probematizing the themes of difference, migration, mobility, globalization, investigated through technology, contemporary art and aesthetics. I contribute to an Italian quarterly journal of arts and culture, for which I edit the section 'Technoculture'. I am member of the Technocultures Research Unit and the Centre for Postcolonial and Gender Studies at the University of Naples “L’Orientale”, and collaborate as researcher and curator to the Matri-Archive of the Mediterranean, a digital archive, a website and forthcoming app for mobile devices, collecting female artistic practices in and/or about the Mediterranean area.
