I was nominated Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow of the Week: cute!
From the MSCA official Facebook Page:
Birindelli is a cultural sociologist from Italy currently based at the University of Helsinki (Finland), Department of Social Research. His project' abbreviated YouthCult, presents a comparative study (Helsinki and Florence) to investigate the meanings given by selected international students to their educational, cultural and overall life experience abroad. The preliminary analysis of international students’ narratives has shown the importance of food in their cultural experience abroad. Pierluca has already participated in the European Researchers’ Night at the Finnish Science Centre Heureka. This is his insight as an MSCA fellow:
“The programme is structured to give constant backup, so I could truly focus on the research project and grow as a scholar tout court. I would say that MSCA fellowship has a constructive effect even early on. From the very first minute you receive such recognition, you instantly feel more positive and encouraged to pursue your goals”.
