Roberta Raffaetà

Roberta Raffaetà is a socio-cultural anthropologist. Her research explores how to live together in an entangled world, in a planet made of human and more-than-human beings. Through this perspective, she has studied diverse but interrelated topics at the intersection between health, science and technology, the environment and politics of recognition. Her new book Antropologia dei microbi (CISU, 2020) has just been published and illustrates how scientists produce knowledge about microbes, how scientists see and think at microbes and why to understand this matters in how we, as human beings, conceive and enact our place in a microbial world. She has a PhD from the University of Lausanne and has worked at various universities in Italy (Trento, Verona, Milano-Bicocca) and abroad (Monash Melbourne, UCLA) thanks to a Marie Curie and a Fulbright Schuman fellowship. At the Faculty of Design and Art of the Free University of Bolzano, she participates in two projects: SPASS (Studying, Portraying and ASSessing examples of good scientific practice in interdisciplinary work) and PPE (Praxis, Performativity, Embodied Knowledge).
