Chiara Bresciani

MA, PhD Student

Chiara Bresciani


Research interests:
Politics, environmental concerns, promises of development and international activism: they constitute my starting point to bridge classic ethnological knowledge of Huave (Ikojts) indigenous people of Oaxaca (Mexico) with the challenges posed by their unequal inclusion in the globalised world. 
For my PhD project (informed by long-term fieldwork), I work on different planes of time, constantly shifting between myth and history and building on concepts of cultural heritage, moral economy and local/national identity.
I have been working in this community since 2010. Previously, I have been interested in the cultural determinants of alcohol consumption and the local strategies to overcome addiction.
