Research Summary

My PhD research focuses on female to male crossdressers known as dansō, on how they perform masculinity, and on the emotional labour they carry on. In my research I adopt an ethnographic approach and methodology. In addition, I am interested in contemporary Japanese visual arts and I published two articles on Italian peer reviewed journals about the contemporary artists Yamamoto Takato and Matsui Fuyuko.
