Asia Della Rosa

PhD student in education at the School of Education and Communication, Jönköping University

I taught Italian language and culture for a national educational association in Sweden for several years, a formative experience that I pursued while attending a master’s degree in Ethnic and Migration Studies at Linköping University. Before these experiences, I studied Political Science, International Relations and Human Rights at the University of Padua, and I was involved in several research groups - part of civil society - focused on issues such as migration, race and gender in Italy.

In my role as a doctoral student, I focus on the production and re-production of specific forms of oppression such as a race, gender, and class, in the practices of teaching and learning in Sweden. In particular, I am interested in rethinking about these practices taking into account one’s vulnerabilities and personal experiences - in relation to the forms of oppression - rather than denying/decontextualising them by displacing them to other spaces and bodies. Moreover, I am particularly curious about the possibilities and creative alternatives in addressing and challenging the forms of oppression mentioned above in these specific contexts.

In my spare time I like designing and sewing clothes, spending time outdoors, making to-do lists and reading books.
