Eleonora Diamanti holds a Ph.D. in Semiotics from the Université du Québec à Montréal. From 2010 to 2017 she lived in Montréal and worked on the city’s public space and festival culture. She is a former Post-Doctoral Fellow at McGill University’s School of Architecture where she was affiliated to the Facility for Architectural Research in Media and Mediation. In the past two years, Dr. Diamanti was Limited-term Assistant Professor (2017) and Post-Doctoral Fellow (2016-2018) at the Department of Anthropology, University of Victoria. Her interest in festivals, media, and the city brought her to work on nocturnal practices: from entertainment venues, like Italian discotheques to radical spaces at night.

Dr. Diamanti takes a special interest in visual and material culture and alternative modes of undertaking and disseminating academic research. She participated in research-creation projects in Canada, Italy, and Cuba. She co-directed “Guardians of the Night” (2018) an experimental short-length ethnographic film on nighttime activities in Guantanamo (Cuba). Since 2016 she is part of Emidio di Treviri, an independent research group working on the reconstruction process in Central Italy after the earthquake of 2016-2017 and she co-directed the short-length documentary “After the Earthquake” (2017).
