Paola Tine' (Palermo 1991), is an anthropologist with expertise in visual research methods, immigration and food practices.
Paola Tine' is a PhD student in Social Anthropology. After her studies in the Arts & Humanities (BA Human Sciences with a major in Cultural Anthropology, University of Siena), she specialised in Visual Anthropology (MA, University of Siena). During her studies, she has focused on the Ukrainian conflict and on the memory-building process in post-soviet states. Her recent work included a fieldwork among the Nepali-speaking Bhutanese community of Adelaide in collaboration with professor John Gray. She is a member of the Food Values Research Group at the University of Adelaide coordinated by professor Rachel Ankeny. Paola's current research deals with social change in modern Nepal, with a focus on on the topic of food practices and healthy eating. Her methodological interest is to show some of the insights of sociological research through visual representation. In her current work, in fact, she enlightens the importance of visual creations in expressing the insights of the anthropological research. Paola has exhibited some of her works in Siena, Palazzo di San Galgano, in 2014. For her artistic merit and contribution to social research through painting, she is the recipient of the '2018 Jon Prosser Award for outstanding work by beginning scholars in Visual Methodologies'.
