Dr. Giulia Carabelli, 2016-2019
Giulia Carabelli was a member of the “Empires of Memory” Research Group for three years (October 2016- September 2019). From 1 October 2019, she has been a Lecturer in Sociology at Queen’s University Belfast. Her current project is a comparative and ethnographic study of “Viennese” coffeehouses in Vienna, Trieste, Budapest, and Sarajevo. Reflecting on the imperial imprint of these preserved establishments, the project explores how the legacies of the Austro-Hungarian Empire affect processes of identity formation and aspirations in these cities. Her first book, The Divided City and the Grassroots. The (Un)Making of Ethnic Divisions in Mostar was published in 2018 by Palgrave.
