We are an interdisciplinary group of academic researchers based in the UK, however, we endeavour to feature work that explores various international settings, conditions and engagements with diverse communities.
The team (alphabetically) is comprised of:
Simina Dragos (she/her) is a PhD student at the Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge. Her research and political interests revolve around anti-Roma racism and (youth) activism in her home-country, Romania, but also in (Eastern) Europe more broadly. She seeks to engage with decolonial theoretical and methodological perspectives in her work, thinking about imperial and colonial influences in the Eastern European periphery. She loves yoga, walks and podcasts.
