Elena Caneva

Research Assistant, University of Milan

ElenaCanevaI am a post doc fellow at the Department of social and political Studies, University of Milan and work with M. Ambrosini on the Italian contribution to ACCEPT-PLURALISM.

In 2008 I got a PhD in Sociology at the Graduate School in Social, Economic and Political Studies, University of Milan, with a dissertation entitled "Adolescence and migration. Identity and peer relations in youth of foreign origins”. The dissertation, supervised by Professor Ambrosini, explored the strategies used by youth of immigrant origins to construct their identities and to create linkages with peers. I also worked on transnational and rejoined families, on intergenerational relations in migrants families, on immigrant youth sociality. My research interests are second generations, intergenerational relations, intercultural relations, identity processes.
