I am a Lecturer in Media and Cultural Studies at Brunel University, London.
I work with qualitative social research methods, with an emphasis on ethnography and reception studies.
My main research interests are nationality and ethnicity, regionalism and nationalism, globalisation and identities, postcolonial approaches to history and the politics of representation.
I have taught subjects in the fields of Media and Cultural Studies, Social Research, and the Humanities at University College London, the University of the Arts (LCC & CSM) and other institutions in the UK & Italy.
I am a member of the Editorial Board of JICMS – Journal of Italian Cinema and Media Studies. I am also a Founder and Editor of GAME Journal and a Board Member of DiGRA Italia & British DiGRA.
My most recent work focuses on the nexus between heritage, history, and representations in media, institutions, tourism, education, and society.
I am currently working on publications based on my work on the legacy of Greater Greece in South Italy and on the representations of Italy in digital media.
I am also working on research projects that aim to sustain inclusivity policies in the creative industries and critical historiographies in Mediterranean Europe.
