Project – title: The Ties That (un) Bind: Affect and Organization in the Bosnia-Herzegovina Protests, 2014
Giulia holds a PhD in sociology at Queen’s University Belfast and a Masters in Research Architecture at Goldsmiths College. Her PhD thesis, developed as part of the “Conflict in Cities and the Contested State” project, examined the process of reconstructing Mostar (Bosnia Herzegovina). Giulia’s research interest is located at the intersection of urban sociology, art practice, and political theory. In particular, she is interested in analysis of urban space production in relation to notions of political resistance, social change, and modes of criticality. Giulia mainly works as an ethnographer in exploring the roles and potential of grassroots movements and civil society actors in the making of urban spaces in contested and politically fragile environments.
