“I am Camilla (she/her), I came from Italy to Finland 11 years ago. I am finalising my PhD in human geography about the everyday life of people with a refugee background in Turku, Finland. Later this year, I will start as project researcher in The Endings project (funded by the KONE Foundation).
My work aims at amplifying people’s own experiences and definitions of self, citizenship, refuge and the spatio-temporal aspects of such experiences.
I am part of collectives that challenge academic and national boundaries and that strive to put research at the service of everyday social justice: the Activist Research Network (https://mailman.abo.fi/mailman/listinfo/activist-research-network); We See You ry (https://www.facebook.com/weseeyoucampaign); Every Woman’s Centre (https://www.facebook.com/kaikkiennaistentalo).
I have been in ETMU’s board for 2 years. I am honored and humbled to pick up the chair’s baton and work together for ETMU to remain and further grow as a (self-)critical community for social justice in society and the academy.
In my free time, I like to ramble, dance and listen to (loud) music.”
