Sabrina Stallone is a doctoral researcher and lecturer 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. In 2022, she was a visiting fellow at the Department of Geography at Humboldt University in Berlin and at the Anthropology Program at City University New York's Graduate Center.

Her research interests include:

  • urban anthropology
  • anthropology of the future
  • space and gender
  • feminist political economy
  • urban social movements

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

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). Her doctoral research focuses on urban future scenarios, growth narratives and the resulting displacement mechanisms in Zurich. Departing from a feminist anthropological focus, she uses her ethnographic research on Zurich's land reserves to illuminate the social and embodied inequalities inherent in the imaginative and material practices that contribute to the making of urban futures.
