Marie Curie Fellow, CNRS, Centre Norbert Elias, France



Anthropologist, I am specialized in the field of childhood and familyhood in Europe. My PhD thesis under the direction of Didier Fassin was awarded the Richelieu Solennel Prize of the Chancellery of Paris in 2015. The ongoing project Lesbians and Their Kids at Court (LeMoKiaC) investigates the extent to which children’s voices are listened to by mothers and by professionals within the procedures for the legal recognition of French and Italian intended mothers in lesbian-headed households.
