The Missed Encounter with the Other in my Migration Experience in the Light of Reflexive Ethnography
Giulia Rossi’s current research project relies on how the dimension of migration experience lead to change of individual identity symbols and artefacts. Broadly speaking, she is studying individual cultural dynamics change by a historical and psychological perspective, through the analysis of affective and cognitive personality dimensions in the dyadic encounter with the Other. Through the dialectic dimension of the intercultural relations, she is finalizing new concepts about equilibrium of absorption and rejection of shared symbols and their spread into peer’s community. Her research goal is to create systematic tools to analyze emic change effect into symbolic dynamics cultures.
