Dr. Valentina Carraro is Assistant Professor at the GPIO and is affiliated with the AISSR programme group on Political and Economic Geographies. Her research broadly considers how emerging digital technologies and practices transform people, places and the relations between them. She is currently especially interested in the geopolitics of platforms, working at the intersection of digital and political geography.
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.
