Stefania Animento

MA in Social Sciences
Humboldt University, Berlin
Stefania Animento studied International Relations (BA) and Social Sciences (MA) in Italy and Germany. She graduated in 2014 with a thesis on the concept of social mix in disadvantaged neighborhoods of Berlin. Since then, she has been enrolled as a Phd Candidate in Urban Studies at the University of Milan-Bicocca and at the Humboldt University of Berlin. In her work, she focuses on the urban as a privileged setting to analyze social life and social inequalities. More specifically, she investigates how young migrants interact with processes of urban restructuring related to the housing and labor market, by focusing on the case study of young Italian migrants in Berlin.

In the past years, she has taught courses in Sociology at the Humboldt University and at the Evangelische Hochschule in Berlin. She is currently based at the Georg Simmel Center for Metropolitan Studies in Berlin, where she has co-founded a research group on “Global Urban Youth.” As a lecturer, she is particularly interested in developing participative ways of teaching, such as research-based learning.
