Biography / Academic Interests
Francesca Degiuli received her Ph.D. in Sociology with an emphasis in Global Studies from UC Santa Barbara in September 2007. Previously she studied history in Turin, Italy and historical documentary film-making at George Washington University, followed by work in the film industry before returning to the university to complete her doctorate. Before joining CSI, Professor Degiuli was a Faculty Fellow for two years in the Global Studies department at UC Santa Barbara.
Professor Degiuli’s research interests lie at the intersections of gender, globalization, immigration, and work, and are driven by broad questions about the theoretical linkages between political economy and culture. Specifically, she is interested in how both political economy and culture affect work in terms of both ideology and labor markets and in how they generate, preserve, and challenge intersecting inequalities, particularly those based on race, gender, class, and nation.
Professor Degiuli’s work as appeared in the European Journal of Women Studies, Work, Employment and Society, Aging and Society, Migration Letters, and Modern Italy.
