Graduate student in "Global Cultures", University of Bologna

I am an Indian student who has graduated in a Masters in Global Cultures at the University of Bologna, Italy. Focusing on colonial and post-colonial studies, my interest lies in understanding identity constructions at the margins, the ‘liminal identities’ and also tracing transnational languages of solidarity in resistance movements. I am currently working at the Home Office in Bologna as an interpreter for Political asylum seekers, translating from Urdu, Hindi, Punjabi to Italian and I have also volunteered as a translator at the French Italian borders like Ventimiglia and Oulx. I occasionally write for the Times of India, Speaking Tree column.
