Karampampas, Panas

par Chrystèle Guilloteau - publié le

 

Panas Karampampas is a post-doctoral researcher at the École des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS). He currently works on global governance and Intangible Cultural Heritage policies in Greece (https://frictions.hypotheses.org/research). Previously he lectured in the Department of Social Anthropology at the University of St Andrews, where he also completed his PhD. His research focused on the European goth scene, digital anthropology, dance and cosmopolitanism, scrutinising the core aspects of the goth life-project which build towards individuality, connectivity, movement and inclusivity as well as the creative display of their hybrid cosmopolitanism, the very essence of what it is to be goth. He has also conducted ethnographic research on Roma education as a scientific associate at the Centre for Intercultural Studies at the University of Athens.
