Research project: Inequality in Siliconised Romanian Cities

This research proposes to investigate emerging and/or deepening urban inequalities through a focus on the lived experiences of evening- and night-shift workers in manual low-paid sectors that support Romania’s fast expanding Information Technology Industry (ITI). In this vein, the research experiments with a mixed methodology, combining classic anthropological fieldwork and innovative night ethnography with the digital ethnographic methods that are appropriate in a time of social distancing.
