Benedetta Zocchi is a Leverhulme Trust Doctoral Scholar at the School of Politics and International Relations, Queen Mary, University of London. She is interested in post-colonial legacies, de-colonial thinking and the necropolitics of migration and bordering in Europe. Her past work explored the social and political construction of colonial amnesia in Italy and the re-activation of colonial consciousness in contemporary racists practices and discourses in Italy, France and the UK.
