dr. Anna Mignosa

Anna Mignosa (PhD) is assistant professor at the School of History, Culture and Communication at Erasmus University Rotterdam (the Netherlands) and at the University of Catania (Italy). Her research interests focus on cultural economics, specifically cultural heritage and cultural policies, with a specific focus on the organisation of the institutions responsible for culture and the strategy they use; the evolution of international cultural policies and new models of public governance. Her current research investigates the relationship between culture and development and the role the former can play in society, and the economics of craft. She is co-editor of the Handbook on the Economics of cultural heritage (Edward Elgar, 2013), The Economic analysis of craft (Palgrave, 2019) and Teaching cultural economics (Edward Elgar, 2020). Anna has extensive experience in teaching internationally about cultural economics and cultural entrepreneurship. Since January 2021 Anna has been research coordinator of the Heritage & Identity group at the Leiden Delft Erasmus (LDE) Centre for Global Heritage and Development. Anna is particularly interested in the potential effect of research on society. For this reason, she is passionate about teaching and bringing research to life applying it to the world of practice.
