Dr Giovanni Picker

  • Lecturer in the Sociology of Inequalities (Sociology)

Biography

I am currently a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in the Sociology of Inequalities. I received my Ph.D. in Sociology and Comparative Urban Studies from Milan-Bicocca University (2009), and a B.A. + M.A. (Laurea) in Political Sciences and Cultural Sociology from the State University of Milan (2004). 

Research interests

As an ethnographer interested in urban life, politics, the economy, and culture, I draw on combinations of ethnography and archival research to examine dominant logics and shared understandings of belonging, moral worth, incorporation, and exclusion. I am particularly interested in race as a logic of social organization, and the ways in which various forms of racism play out at the intersections of everyday life and urban politics.

Since 2005, I have empirically researched these social phenomena in a number of cities in Kosovo, Romania, Italy, France, the UK and Germany.

I also have co-edited six thematic collections focusing on the relationships between urban spaces, the state and everyday forms of domination, with the aim of critically broadening theoretical horizons and decentering typically Western-oriented perspectives. Two of the most recent jointly edited collections are the following:

 

  • European Cities: Modernity, Race and Colonialism [Manchester University Press, 2022], edited with Noa K. Ha. A collection that organically rethinks European urban modernity by incorporating various combinations of global urban studies and postcolonial, decolonial and race critical theories from different historical perspectives.

 

My current book project develops a socio-historical framework to examine the diverse and often undiscussed racial aspects of 21st century European urban societies in order to more radically address social inequalities in Europe and beyond.

Related research interests

  • Ethnographic/Sociographic theory and writing styles
  • Anthropology of policy
  • Global and European histories of the Left 
  • Theory and history of Socialism and Postsocialism
