Research overview

Elena Zambelli is an ethnographer with expertise on gender and sexuality, race, migration, and intersecting inequalities. For her PhD, she explored how Italian and migrant women in Italy negotiate the tension between sexuality and status across a continuum of spaces of sexual consumption and sex work. As a postdoctoral researcher, she investigated mixed race and mixed migration status couples’ experiences of racism and discrimination in Europe. Currently, she works on British, EU and third country nationals’ experiences of migration, settlement and repatriation after Brexit, and their perceptions of un/belonging.
