Current research

My current research revolves around three main axes:

  • The changing notions, materialities, and practices of home in a precarious, mobile world, and the rise of temporary living arrangements.
  • Discourses around everyday life, in particular 'art of living ('art de vivre'), the works of the French writer Georges Perec, and the concept of the infra-ordinary ('l'infra-ordinaire').
  • An experimental empirical study that employs ethnographic and visual techniques to explore young people's ways of living in Bologna and Copenhagen.
