Presentation

Alessandro Jedlowski est anthropologue des médias et des migrations. Après un doctorat de recherche en études africaines à l’Université de Naples « L’Orientale », il a obtenu des bourses Marie Curie et FNRS pour conduire des recherches postdoctorales en Afrique (au Nigéria, en Côte d’Ivoire et en Ethiopie) et au sein de la diaspora africaine en Europe. Ses travaux récents se concentrent principalement sur l’analyse des industries des médias africains et sur les réseaux de circulation (culturelle, économique, marchande) qui relient l’Afrique et ses diasporas en Europe et dans les pays du Sud (l’Inde et la Chine en particulier).
