Short Bio

I am a cultural geographer with a strong interest in social and political theory.

Before taking up my current position at the University of Bologna, I have worked in a range of diverse international contexts. After having started my academic career in Italy, at the universities of Trieste and Venice, I was appointed as Professor of Geography at Newcastle University and at Royal Holloway, University of London. I subsequently worked as Head of Department at Wageningen University, in the Netherlands, and at Macquarie University, in Australia. My main research projects have focused on the relationship between spatial theory, biopolitics and modernity. I have also written extensively on philosopher Giorgio Agamben and legal theorist Carl Schmitt.

My most recent books are Appunti di Geografia (2022), Camps Revisited (2019, with I.Katz and D.Martin), After Heritage (2018, with H.Muzaini), Hitler’s Geographies (2016, with P.Giaccaria), Moroccan Dreams (2016, with L.Wagner), On Schmitt and Space (2015, with R.Rowan).

Recently, I was awarded an ERC Advanced Grant for a project entitled: TheGAME: Counter-mapping informal refugee mobilities along the Balkan Route.
