Francesca Alice Vianello (Ph.D.) is Lecturer in Sociology of Work at University of Padua (Italy). Her main areas of research and teaching are migration, work and gender. In particular, she is interested in global care chains, care work and occupational health. Currently she is carring out a field research on care homes and labour turnover.
She carried out as PI the research project “Migration and Occupational Health: Understanding the Risks for Eastern European Migrant Women” financed by the University of Padova after which several articles and a book were published.
She participated to different research projects in the field of migration studies adopting the “engendering migration theory”. Specifically, she was Scientific Responsible for the Research Unit of Padova for the project financed by the European Commission “Towards shared interests between migrant and local workers”. She conducted a study on unemployed migrant workers from Morocco and Romania and an investigation on everyday life strategies of Ukrainian, Moldovan and Romanian migrant families across borders. Furthermore, she cooperated with the National research project “Conditions for recognition. Gender, Migrations, Social Spaces” (PRIN 2009) and with the Daphne European Commission Project “Speak Out! Empowering Migrant, Refugee and Ethnic Minority Women against Gender Violence in Europe” both of them directed by Franca Bimbi.
During 2013 she was visiting post-doc at the Department of Sociology II of Complutense University of Madrid, with the supervision of prof. Joaquin Arango.
For her Ph.D. dissertation she did a multi-local ethnography on the migratory practices and meaning of Ukrainian women and their transnational social networks. This study gave the way to one monographic book and several essays in Italian and English cited in international publications. Results from her other researches have been discussed and published in Italian, English and Spanish in several journal articles, book chapters and edited volumes.
