About me

Giulia Sciorati is an LSE Fellow in China and the Global South, in the Department of International Relations at LSE.

Her research focuses on China-Central Asia relations, particularly investigating China's visual and narrative power in the region. She is interested in Chinese-financed temporary exhibitions in Central Asian museums, examining representations of shared historical memory and visualisations of contemporary China.

Prior to joining LSE, Giulia worked as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow on an interdepartmental research project entitled "The Belt and Road Initiative and the Impact of COVID-19 on China's International Projection," directed by Sofia Graziani and funded by the University of Trento, where she also completed her PhD in International Studies in September 2020.

She has convened International Relations, International Security, and Contemporary Chinese History courses at several Italian universities.

Giulia has spent numerous study and research stays abroad, including at Beijing Language and Culture University, KIMEP University in Almaty, the University of Nottingham, and the University of Oxford.

Not available to supervise MPhil/PhD students.
