Katja Pettinen (PhD) works at the intersection of cultural and linguistic anthropology. Her current research projects examine the nature of embodied learning, consciousness, sensoriality, and violence through the ecological and theoretical framework of Peircean semiotics. She conducts long-term ethnographic work on traditional Japanese martial art (Bujinkan Taijutsu) particularly as the somatic practice is translated and travels from Japan to North America and Europe.

Samuele Poletti‘s doctoral research is focused on the perception(s) of death in the Sinja Valley of Jumla District (Western Nepal), and how this may shed light upon the ways in which people make sense of existence. Besides resorting to the classic instrument of academic writing, he is interested in the possibilities that photography may offer as a complementary means to the ethnographic description, not least by virtue of a communicative immediacy not always possible in the written text. He is member of: Swiss Anthropological AssociationAmerican Anthropological Association (AAA);  Association for Nepal and Himalayan Studies (ANHS); Britain-Nepal Academic Council (BNAC).
