Sabrina Stallone is a doctoral researcher at the University of Bern. She completed an MA in Cultural Analysis at the University of Amsterdam, where she received a pre-doctoral fellowship from the School for Regional, Transnational and European Studies (ARTES) and worked as an assistant at the Centre for European Studies (ACES). Previously, she had studied English as well as Social and Cultural Anthropology at the University of Zurich and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. 

Her research interests include:

  • urban anthropology
  • gender theory
  • globalization and gentrification
  • feminist political economy
  • future-making

So far, her research has taken place in urban contexts in Italy, Palestine and Israel.

For her dissertation project, she received a “Doc.CH” grant (excellence funding scheme) by the Swiss National Science Foundation. Her project is supervised by Prof. Dr. Sabine Strasser (University of Bern) and Prof. Dr. Luiza Bialasiewicz (University of Amsterdam). At the core of Sabrina’s dissertation project lies an interest in how gendered subjectivities are shaped by and how they shape contemporary urban spaces, especially those that are undergoing strongly gentrifying urban transformations. Her feminist anthropological focus lies on the imaginative and material processes that partake in building urban futures.
