Photo of Giulia Dal MasoBefore starting my PhD at the Institute for Culture and Society I lived in China for four years, where I worked at the Shanghai's office of IsIAO (Istituto Italiano per l'Africa e l'Oriente). My research focuses on the way in which financialisation is emerging in China and how it is represented through the development of an economic and cultural imaginary. In particular, my dissertation analyses tensions between diverse understandings of 'expertise' held by different actors investing in the Shanghai stock market. In Shanghai, financialisation is creating a 'stock fever' that has engulfed the whole society in a competitive game of the financial market transcending the boundaries between rich and poor, formal and informal, urban and rural.
