Dr. Valentina Carraro is Assistant Professor at the GPIO and is affiliated to the AISSR programme group on Political and Economic Geographies. Her current research focuses on the geopolitical implicationof digital platforms. More broadly, her work sits at the intersection of political geography and political ecology, with a particular interest in how digitalisation and datafication reconfigure socio-spatial relations.
Her book, ‘Jerusalem Online: Critical Cartography for the Digital Age’, has been published by Palgrave-MacMillan in 2021 and examines the politics of web-maps in/of Jerusalem, drawing on ontological social theory and feminist technoscience. Prior to joining UvA, Valentina held a Fondecyt postdoc fellowship at CIGIDEN / Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, in Santiago.
