Simone Zalla Aumaj is an undergraduate student of Cultural Anthropology and Gender Studies at Utrecht University in the Netherlands. In her academic work, Simone tries to integrate her background as a second-generation refugee by challenging hegemonic discourses and providing different narratives and approaches to the concept of migration. She adheres to the concepts of situated knowledges, politics of location, and intersectionality. In her approach to migration, Simone pleads for a nomadic discourse, rather than the hegemonic sedentary discourse that lies at stake within contemporary Europe.
