About Nicola

I am an anthropologist of migration, studying the negotiation of gender, sexuality and subjectivity through the migration process, with particular reference to international (female and male) sex work as a contested and ambivalent space of control and autonomy.

In my sex work trilogy, I want to explore different experiences of the encounter between migration, tourism and sex work, by focusing on the experiences and perspectives of people selling sex and/or love in order to survive and/or live the lives they chose for themselves.

In my academic work and films, I problematise prevailing understandings of the global sex trade as characterised by exploitation and victimisation, by showing to complexity of the subjective investments of the people involved.
